Impact of Place
I want to study Italy’s museums, culture, and social structure regarding marginalized people. As an African American woman who grew up in the American South who has always lived in the margin socially and economically, I hope to embrace a new self in Rome and discover a new sense of place that is less discriminatory than my American South.
