Announcing a show that celebrates the launch of a movement. Told through the experiences of Memphians.

Inaugurate the Resistance is an exhibit that brings together photographs, audio stories, footage and mixed media from the Women’s Marches that happened on January 21, 2017 in Washington, DC and Memphis, TN. Collaborating artists include photo journalist Yolanda M. James, Joann Self Selvidge (True Story Pictures), Sara Kaye Larson (Maps & Weather Productions), and Jamie Harmon (Amurica). The show will take place at Crosstown Arts in midtown Memphis, May 4-8, 2017. Opening night is Friday, May 5th from 6-9.

We need you!

Tell us your story.

If you participated in the Memphis march (or chose NOT to participate), we would love to record your story.  Opening and closing nights will include interactive opportunities for audiences to record their stories onsite in the Spillit Storybooth. Stay tuned for a schedule of days/times you can drop by the gallery to record your stories. These recordings will be posted online at and donated to the Crossroads to Freedom Digital Archive at Rhodes College and the Library of Congress.
