Over the past three years, Jean Merrill, a resident of Morristown, has spent time volunteering at a secondary school for girls in Morogoro, Tanzania, teaching an intense course in English fluency for those students about to enter high school. Photographs from this teaching experience are the topic of this exhibit and lecture. “I have tried to capture the environment of a school for young girls who have been rescued from early marriage, pregnancy, child labor, sex trafficking, or elder care,” she says, “I was their teacher. But along my journey, they became my teachers and I their student.”  Free. Click here to register. [Pictured: “Just after cleaning the blackboards, SEGA Girls’ School, Morogoro, Tanzania”]
