Heighten your civic awareness through conversations about art, history and material culture. Each month, educators from the National Portrait Gallery will partner with colleagues from across the Smithsonian to discuss how historical objects from their respective collections speak to today’s social justice issues.

This September, we’re excited to kick off Hispanic Heritage Month! How can the past experiences of Latina leaders inform our perspectives on social justice in education today? Together with the Smithsonian Latino Center, we’ll explore this key question while analyzing a portrait of educator and activist Antonia Pantoja and the portrayal of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor in “The Four Justices.” Free—Registration required.
