UNCG Sociology wraps centennial with Weatherspoon exhibition

The UNCG Department of Sociology has celebrated its centennial year this past year with a host of activities and events. These events have revolved around the theme “Inequality and Social Justice in a Changing World.” The department has focused on bringing together current students, alumni, and community members around this theme through their alumni networking night, homecoming raffle (where they raised $1,500 for the Interactive Resource Center of Greensboro), free tours of the International Civil Rights Museum, and public lectures by David Leonhardt, Washington bureau chief of The New York Times, and Dawn Porter, advocate, lawyer and documentary filmmaker of “Gideon’s Army.”

The department is concluding its year-long celebration by helping sponsor an art exhibition at the Weatherspoon. The show features works of art selected from the museum’s own collection that illustrate themes of “inequality and social justice.” The exhibition on the second floor of the Weatherspoon runs through June 22.
