The reception celebrates the National Geographic photography exhibit, "Disappearing Islands," which looks at the effects fo the rising water levels on Smith Island.
The night’s lineup also includes the premiere of two documentary shorts made by refugee youth and Wide Angle Youth Media
and a panel discussion focusing on refugee youth resettling in Baltimore. There will also be a performance by Native Ghanaians Kofi Dennis and Kwame Anash-Brew who form Anansegromma, a group that explores the traditional music, storytelling and dances of a typical Ghanaian village.
