Scientist of ActivismDuring the summer and fall of 2023 we were pleased to offer an exhibit, curated with intention by Kamau Pope, honoring the decades-long work of Mandy Carter, a Durham, NC-based Black lesbian feminist activist who has been central in the struggle for social justice, especially nonviolent resistance, Black freedom movements, and queer liberation. 

The exhibit design was created by a Durham, NC-based, Black-owned firm, Kompleks Creative, and the typeface was designed, in honor of Mandy Carter, by Tré Seals of Vocal Type.
