Lecture: "Destiny's Children: A Legacy of War and Gangs"

Mon, April 19, 2010 | Thompson Conference Center, TCC 1.110

7:00 PM

Like many photojournalists, Donna DeCesare has covered the brutality of war. But what of war's aftermath? In her Destiny's Children project, DeCesare follows the lives of four young people marked by the experience of war. Each struggles with difficult circumstances and has to face the lure of gangs. Told in images with bilingual text, the stories explore the complexity of their experiences with compassion and political insight.  Free and open to the public.
