An exhibit of portraits and oral history titled “Ferguson Voices: Disrupting the Frame” will be on display at the Dayton Metro Library Northwest Branch from March 1-31.

The exhibit features the experience of nine University of Dayton students and their advisers who traveled to Ferguson, Mo., in May 2016 to interview persons impacted by the August 2014 unrest following the shooting of Michael Brown.

A reception for the exhibit will be held 4-6 p.m., Tuesday, March 7, at the library branch, located at 2410 Philadelphia Dr. A “Pizza with the Police” event will be held with the Dayton Police Department.

UD students who participated in the project will gather at the library branch from 4-6 p.m. March 20 to share tips for conducting successful family interviews and what to do with collected stories in a free program called “Why Interview Grandma?”

The exhibit, reception and program are all free and open to the public. For more information call 937-463-BOOK.
