#blackgirls4change: Hobson City 9 Exhibit

Free and open to the public

A total of 29 images taken by young African American girls from Hobson City will be on display at The University of Alabama’s Paul R. Jones Gallery of Art in downtown Tuscaloosa from Wednesday, August 24, through Friday, September 30.

The Hobson City 9 is adapted from the famed Little Rock Nine students who enrolled in Little Rock Central High School in 1957, when public school segregation ended. The Little Rock Nine were denied entry by segregationists, but they later entered with the National Guard’s assistance. Inspired by their perseverance, The Hobson City 9 created this exhibit to represent how a handful of people can change society, and that change begins with engagement on a local or community level.
