Open Hours: The Future Generation—Parenting, Children, and Community Stories Author China Martens, artist Jennifer White-Johnson, and journalist Lisa Snowden-McCray will discuss how they create their work from their experiences as mothers: China, with a zine she started as a young single mother; Jennifer with her visual activism, sharing black boy joy and expanding our understanding of autism; and Lisa, by talking about the way her experiences as a black mother intersect with the stories she tells working as a journalist in Baltimore City. The three will also encourage attendees to begin telling their own stories of motherhood in small groups before coming together to create a zine to share with Museum visitors. Amy Hughes Braden, creator of Artist Mother Studio, will have zines, books, and other resources available. Snacks provided and volunteers on-hand to assist with children’s participation.
