Black/Inside: Opportunities for Volunteers…

by Camp Firebelly (2012)

Black/Inside: A History of Captivity & Confinement in the U.S. considers how a system of imprisoning Black men and women has been sustained from colonial times to the present. The exhibition illustrates the historical roots of black confinement and provides insights into how the U.S. became a Prison Nation, detaining & incarcerating over 2.3 million people.

We have some opportunities for volunteers to help with this project.

1. Carpentry — We could use a couple of volunteers with carpentry skills to help us mount the exhibition. We need help on October 12 and 13.

2. Painting — We will be painting removable walls and could use help from volunteers who like to paint. We need help on October 12 and 13.

3. Staffing Saturdays — The exhibition will be open on Saturdays during its month-long run. We could use volunteers who can spend a few hours in the space welcoming visitors. We need help on November 3, November 10, and November 17. Volunteers are needed for two shifts between: 11 to 2 p.m.; and 2 to 5 p.m.

If you are interested and want to help with any of these opportunities, please contact Mariame at
