As part of its Ongoing Revolution project, Temple Contemporary, in collaboration with the Museum of the American Revolution, hosts a virtual public forum elevating the experiences of citizen activists who exemplify the perpetual role of community-led movements in the pursuit of America's ideals.
The forum hosts educator and author Terry Alston Jones, HIV/AIDS activist Jon Winkleman, and community leader Carolina Chan Almeida.
The Ongoing Revolution aims to uncover the overlooked stories that have contributed to the United States’ ongoing pursuit of equality, tolerance, and independence, connecting present-day concerns to the country’s revolutionary legacy.
