How can clothing act as a tool for social justice and political self-expression? Kim Jenkins, lecturer at Pratt Institute and Parsons School of Design will draw upon fashion history and theory to show the role that clothing and styling has played in guiding self-determination in the face of oppression as well as ingenuity when we are presented with limited resources.

This event is part of the "Democracy Lab at the Spacebuster," which is free and open to the public. You can register for this event here.
