This interactive panel and exhibit share the journey of many local and national hidden figures who have been "on the move" to set the pace for progress across the timeline of history. Together, we will walk through untold stories as we learn about current issues, trends, perspectives and motivational stories related to women of color-past and present-who teach us about strength and courage as well as leave us with valuable life lessons that lay the groundwork for future progress.
