City Lore, an Affiliate of the Smithsonian, is pleased to present a Zoom session on January 16 at 8 pm EST, featuring conversations about the transformative power of spirituality in the doll and puppet making processes. The presentation and discussion will feature a number of African American doll and puppet makers featured in the current exhibition, “The Calling: The Transformative Power of African American Doll and Puppet Making.”

Emphasizing several orientations and perspectives on spirituality across their work, this conversation will examine the artists’ callings to create dolls and puppets, and the ways their creations have offered transformative power for themselves and the betterment of the communities in which they live. Serving as moderator will be the exhibit’s scholar, Dr. Phyllis May-Machunda, PhD., who also co-edited the exhibit’s accompanying book.
