Members of Robson’s Voices United toured the Amon Carter Museum’s current special exhibition, Emancipation: The Unfinished Project of Liberation.

The exhibit, sparked by the museum’s bronze statue The Freedman, a 19th century work by a white sculptor, explores American artists’ views of the meaning of emancipation, both at the time of the Civil War and today. The 21st century is represented by the works of seven artists of African descent. The exhibit at the museum in Fort Worth is open until July 9.

The visit is an activity planned by the Voices Diversity Committee, which focuses on educating members of the group about a variety of cultures and demographic groups in the U.S. Upcoming events include a celebration of Juneteenth, sponsored in cooperation with the Robson HOA, and a “Hate Has No Home Here” garden flag campaign in June.

Voices United is a non-partisan group of Robson Ranch women who share progressive values, perform community outreach, provide civic awareness and social contact for members, and have a good time! We’re a 501(c)(3) group. Our annual dues are $20.
