Description

Exhibition Notes, Number 14, Spring 2001. What Is Really Free? Acts of kindness and the stories people tell: an Interview. Between February and June of this year, Indira Freitas Johnson traveled each week from the Chicago area to work with a literacy group at the Knight Memorial Branch of the Providence Public Library. Starting with these students, recent immigrants learning English, Johnson began to collect stories of occasions where people had given "freely” of their time and spirit for the nourishment of others. With the assistance of five graduate students from Rhode Island School of Design, Johnson expanded her collection to include personal stories from throughout the community. David Henry, Head of Education at The RISD Museum, posed the following questions to Johnson.
