Repressed Memories: An Artist Talk with TCU Alum Lillian Young
TCU students, faculty, staff, alumni and retirees are invited to join historical artist and TCU alum Lillian Young for an artist presentation of her work and passion for history.
Growing up, Young’s family made sure she was well educated about the struggles, victories, and heroes in Black history. As an artist, Young depicts forgotten or little-known moments from the Black experience, focusing on lesser known black leaders, stories, events and objects that are commonly recognized by the black communities, but unknown by the general public. In highlighting these moments, she works to make a connection to the social anxiety felt today from the rise in racism, loss of representation, and her own struggle of continuing to fight for equality. Several of Young’s art pieces are currently on display in the TCU Library. View her portfolio.
This virtual presentation will provide an opportunity for the TCU community to meet Lillian Young and learn about her passion as an artist. Members of the TCU community are encouraged to submit questions in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions will be addressed during the presentation. Deadline to submit your questions is Monday, Sept. 14 at 4 p.m.
