Beauty in Action

The saying “ beauty is as beauty does ” means outward appearance matters less than what is inside. But what if outward appearance is what is inside? That is, what if specific elements of appearance are meant to make a social statement, expressing deeply held views?

To explore these questions, members of the Chicago region’s Italian, Brazilian, and African American communities will discuss how hair styles, costumes, dance movements -among other aspects of appearance -constitute a beauty in action that also bespeaks identity.
