Event Details: Surrounded by the "Preach! New Works by Jeffrey Kent" exhibition, there will be a Community Chat at the Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park Museum. Loosely patterned after Baltimore’s popular Stoop Storytelling series, the Community Chat will bring together a diverse panel of individuals to tell their personal stories, talking about why they believe what they do about particular issues. These shared histories will then serve as the jumping-off point for a moderated open discussion amongst panelists and attendees alike, which will include church groups, college students, and LGBT organizations. Featured speakers: Dominick Doleman Rev. David Gaines Rev. Heber Brown Rev. Larry Brumfield Jeffrey Kent's body of work is a critique on the arguments circulating within the Black Christian community on marriage equality for same sex couples. Founder of alternative art studio and gallery, Sub-Basement Artist Studios, Kent was awarded "Best Visual Artist" in the Baltimore City Paper in 2008.
