#daviscenter #HeritageHistoryHighlights

It`s FRIDA FRIDAY, friends!

In an attempt to highlight and celebrate the overlapping heritage months of Hispanic/Latine/x/a/o Heritage and LGBTQ+ History, our intern pointed us aptly toward the ever-amazing and inspirational Frida Kahlo.

Beyond the intersectionalities we can see obviously, did you also know that Frida was a champion of disabled rights? Frida SURVIVED`s significant injuries that then helped inspire her art inasmuch as her gender, sexuality, or other societal inputs.
Hooray for this intersectionality hero! Plus, if you didn`t know already: AWESOME ART!

Check out a gallery of her art where she not only presses society to look at ideas of gender, sexuality, and ableness--but also things like societal concepts of beauty.

Where to begin or stop with Frida! Thanks, DC Media intern for this selection--Frida Friday, indeed!

Happy Mountain Day, Ephs!

We hope, dear audience, that you`ve noted that the DC is being more active online and in social media! We are building a media team right now with new initiatives.

Every Friday will now by "heritage history highlights " day! We will focus on an individual or moment that reflects the different heritage weeks and months . As it is still Hispanic/Latine/Latinx heritage month, we chose to start with Sonia Sotomayor. Thanks DC media intern @jessicajiang102 for getting this started. We look forward to sharing more with you each week!

More to come! Thanks!
