In/Dignity: Exhibit at Cal State San Bernardino Anthropology Museum

SAN BERNARDINO– Visit the opening of the Cal State University San Bernardino (CSUSB) Anthropology’s exhibition, In|Dignity, which is a partnership between the Anthropology Museum at CSUSB and the Inland Empire community. On view until Dec 11, 2018, In|Dignity combines documentary portraits by CSUSB Professor Thomas McGovern and autobiographical reflections by over forty San Bernardino and Riverside County residents. The exhibition documents the role of difference in shaping understandings, opportunities, and identities.

The title “In|Dignity” is meant to be read as a single word – “indignity” – and also as two separate words – “in dignity.” These two meanings capture precisely what the exhibition examines: experiences with stigma, oppression, discrimination, bigotry, exclusion, and prejudice, and simultaneously the pride and self-respect that we must have for ourselves and for others facing injustice. Solidarity requires empathy. Listen to our stories.
