    Summary: How has clothing been used as a form of expression and social activism throughout history? This two-day, one p-credit course dives into the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, and explores fashion, personal presentation, and modes of expression and LGBTQ+ activism from the mid-20th century through today. On day one, tour Stonewall 50 at the New-York Historical Society to consider the historical significance of clothing in LGBTQ+ culture and history. On day two, visit Materials for the Arts and engage in hands-on, classroom-ready art-making activities using reusable materials from the warehouse to explore how fashion can be integrated to teach interdisciplinary history, art history, and visual arts lessons.
