Your Call: How do different cultures honor their ancestors?

Oct 27, 2015

On the October 28th edition of  Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with artists about the 21st annual Oakland Museum’s Day of the Dead exhibition, Rituals + Remembrance.

It explores how Latin American, Filipino, Hawaiian, African Americans and others view death, memory, and healing. How do your remember yours? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Bryan Keith Thomas, painter, and an associate professor at the California College of the Arts, in San Francisco & Oakland

Evelyn Orantes, curator of Public Practice at the Oakland Museum of California
