The exhibit features photo essays about activist grandmothers in Canada, Swaziland, South Africa, Senegal, India, Argentina, the Philippines and Thailand plus indigenous grandmothers from around the world—all of whom are creating a better future for their grandchildren.

Like Muhammad Ali inspired the world, we all have Grandmothers and “Grandothers” in our lives who’ve inspired us. It is time to hear their stories.
