Last month, Wajahat Ali visited the Phillips to facilitate the first #PhillipsConversation in a monthly series taking place during the fall of 2016. We came up with the idea for these open conversations in the hopes that they would serve as a platform for audiences to further engage on larger issues represented in People on the Move: Beauty and Struggle in Jacob Lawrence’s Migration Series. Each talk begins with a “big idea” and follows with questions related to the monthly #PhillipsConversation prompt on the first floor of the museum. Wajahat Ali’s discussion focuses on themes of migration and immigration. See the storify from the Phillips’s live tweets and participants inside and outside of the galleries below, and join us for the next #PhillipsConversation with Porchia Moore on Nov. 10.
