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. 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. Location: The CSUSB Anthropology Museum California State University, San Bernardino 5500 University Parkway, San Bernardino, CA 92407 Social and Behavioral Sciences Building, Room 306 The reception is free and open to the public. Parking at CSUSB is $6.
