This installation is a part of Listening Through Time and Place: An Interactive Oral History Exhibit, OHMA's multimedia interactive popup exhibition of stories, which will take place at the Social Hall at Union Theological Seminary on April 28, 2016 at 5:00 pm.

Still.Life. focuses on the lived experience of history as told by three women born in Trinidad and Tobago in the 1920s. What was life in the British colony like for these women? In this exhibition you will hear accounts that are grounded in that time and place, but also stories that are timeless, deeply personal and universally human.
