Kehayr Brown-Ransaw will discuss his exhibit “to have never known” with Rekhet Si-Asar during this virtual artist talk. The exhibit is a beautiful collection of quilts Kehayr made based on his research of census data of more than 40,000 children abducted into slavery after the transatlantic slave trade was banned by Congress in the United States.
