Branch Museum Panel Highlights News Media’s ‘Design and Hope’ | Richmond Free Press

Richmond Free Press staff members will provide insight into the art and design behind the paper’s coverage of the social justice protest movement two years ago following the killing of George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis.

In the former capital of the Confederacy, Regina H. Boone and Sandra Sellars, both photojournalists for over 20 years, were in the field for 65 days capturing the historic moments that unfolded for the Richmond Free Press. The result of their work is the

exhibition “(Re)Framing Protest: Design + Hope”, at the Branch Museum of Architecture and Design in collaboration with the Richmond Free Press.

“The show represents the communities that have been created there, and we were sensitive to that,” Ms Boone said shortly before the exhibit opened in June. “There is still work to be done and we are participating in this work as photojournalists.”

The August 25 roundtable begins at 6 p.m. at the Branch Museum, 2501 Monument Ave.

Gary Flowers, who hosts “The Gary Flowers Show” on Richmond Radio, will moderate the panel, which will also include Richmond Free Press editor Jean Patterson Boone, managing editor Bonnie Newman Davis and vice president of production April Coleman.
