Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center

Once a failed initiative and footnote in the long history of educational inequities experienced by young Black men and women, Toussaint L’Ouverture College has come to life in the mind of artist Jean-Marc Superville Sovak, who will moderate this speculative discussion.
