About this Event
85 Park Place NE, Atlanta, GA 30303https://atlantaglobalstudies.gatech.edu/atlanta-global-studies-symposium
The 2023 Atlanta Global Studies Symposium kicks off with keyote speaker, Yehimi Cambrón, a DACAmented artist and activist based in Atlanta and born in San Antonio Villalongín, Michoacán, México. She became undocumented at seven years old when she immigrated to Georgia, where she grew up on Buford Hwy—the multicultural heart of Atlanta. Cambrón’s work centers immigrants and predominantly reflects the experiences of Undocumented Americans. Her landmark murals in Atlanta historically assert the presence and humanity of immigrants, depict the intersectionality and complexity of their stories, and challenge the white male-centered history that dictates who is worthy of a public, monumental celebration.
City of Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens will give opening remarks.
A reception will follow.
