Upcoming Events

The Social Justice Institute presents meaningful events where students, scholars and community members gather together to tap into our individual and collective psyches and souls, hearts and minds, knowledge and networks of support, and dare to draw forth the words, analyses, strategies and actions that respect and uplift human dignity and life.  We are honored to provide distinctive educational opportunities  – and we invite you to join us and become partners in our work.

The Social Justice Institute and Kelvin Smith Library announce "Uncontained: They Wanna See Me Fall," a photography exhibit by local photographer and activist, Donald Black, Jr.

Featuring 20 photographs, this exhibit is informed by Mr. Black's experience with the evolution of bike riding in Cleveland. This body of work focuses on the freedom of creative expression for Black men and boys riding pedal and dirt bikes. Black sees beautiful and necessary innocent rage being expressed by riders as he captures them popping wheelies and building bonds through bikes. There is a high risk when expressing yourself freely and uncontained as a Black rider, often seen as a threat, disobedience, ruthlessness and danger. Even so, these riders carry on and demonstrate the power of being yourself and being free.

The Social Justice Institute is sponsoring this exhibit from September 21 - November 17 at Kelvin Smith Library's 2nd floor gallery. The library is located at 11055 Euclid Avenue and is open to the public until 8:00 pm.
