Our twenty-second Standing-Room Only Lecture will have Sebastian Ebarb crossing the Quinobequin to talk about the history of colonization and slavery that led to the displacement of both Native and Indigenous Black communities from their ancestral lands. These communities have created and built new visual connections in the movement to reclaim power. This talk will be an exploration of the historical visual connection between black and Native folks. 

Our speaker, Sebastian Ebarb, is the former Design Director for the City of Boston. A member of a mixed Choctaw-Apache tribe, and Boston transplant. his is co-owner of the design studio Nahi (meaning “we” in Apache). A subscriber to futuristic ideals, Sebastian works with clientele no matter their budget.


Thirty tickets are available for $10 each.

Standing-Room Only Lectures aim to present short talks about graphic design, typography, and collecting. The lectures are kept to about twenty minutes because—true to its name—the series takes place in our standing-room only gallery. So, wear comfortable shoes and bring a short attention span.

We will be checking ticket reservations at the door. Don’t bother printing your ticket as we can look you up by name. We will have a stand-by line at the door for this event. Five minutes before the event begins, we will open up the event to those in the stand-by line on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have reserved a ticket for this event, please note that it will guarantee your place until 6:55 pm on the day of the event.

Will this talk be recorded or available for streaming?
