Tiara Unique Francois Exhibition “learning to be T.U.F.”

Exhibition through –March 29, 2024
Oak Cliff Cultural Center (223 W. Jefferson Blvd.)

The exhibition title, learning to be T.U.F., directly references her lived experience from childhood to adulthood. T.U.F. is an acronym for Tiara Unique Francois and though it relates to developing that thick skin that life requires, it is also about being wise and knowing oneself. Curator Ciara Elle Bryant shares, “Tiara Unique Francois doesn’t shy away from exploration. Learning to be T.U.F. is a direct musing of this soul journey. From journal entries to soul portraits Francois has offered the viewer a glimpse into her new practice of learning herself.”

Juanita J. Craft Civil Rights House Tour

The Juanita J. Craft Civil Rights House is one of only three house museums in the nation honoring major female figures in the modern civil rights movement. Craft, a leading civil rights, and social justice reformer, lived in this 1920 Craftsman bungalow for 35 years. She organized 185 National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) branches and dozens of youth councils across Texas and helped lead efforts to desegregate the University of Texas School of Law, North Texas State University (now University of North Texas) and the State Fair of Texas.
