Upcoming Cultural Lens Programs with the Holland Museum

February 19, 2021: Join the Holland Museum for two free, virtual programs discussing the important issue of discriminatory housing practices. These programs are the next installments in the Holland Museum’s Cultural Lens series. Michelle Stempien, the Museum’s new Education and Community Programs Manager said, “Museums do more than keep and house the past; they are active participants in current events. As dialogues on diversity, equity, access and inclusion continue throughout our community, the Holland Museum is pleased to contribute these two programs about fair housing practices to the conversation. It is especially important to discuss this topic with children and their families as young people will be the future leaders and change makers in the struggle to create safe and equitable spaces for BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ members of our community”.

March 4, 7:00m-8:30pm: Fair Housing: A Historical Overview

Dr. Fred Johnson (Hope College Professor) and Liz Keegan (Fair Housing Center of West Michigan) will share a history of how housing segregation and discriminatory housing policies such as redlining continue to impact us all today.

March 18, 6:00pm-7:00pm: Fair Housing Five and the Haunted House

The Holland Museum presents a reading and discussion of The Fair Housing Five & the Haunted House. The book and discussion will be lead in English by Bree Miranda (Fair Housing Center of West Michigan), and in Spanish by Brisa Martinez-Contreras. The Fair Housing Center of West Michigan will provide complimentary copies of the book (available in English or Spanish) and activities to those who register by March 10. This is a family program.
