captions and bio, a sample press release, and templates for invitation
postcards, posters and banners on CD.
The educational value of this exhibition cannot be overemphasized. Visitors to the
exhibition in cities and on campuses have been very young, very old and ages in between. The young come to learn about a legend; older folks come to reminisce. They've been people of all ethnicities, and African-Americans are most effusive with excitement when viewing this work.
Sonia is available to give a lecture with slideshow on request. February bookings are understandably very popular for its tie-in with Black History month. Please book early to avoid disappointment.
