On September 29, 2023, the Humanities Truck attended Art All Night 2023 in Mount Pleasant. The Truck team’s project for this event was entitled “Portraying Mount Pleasant.” Director Dan Kerr, graduate fellows Daiki Tsumagari and Inaya Rivera, and community fellow Angie Whitehurst invited attendees to share their stories and memories of Mount Pleasant by writing or drawing on prompt cards, which were then tied to a map of the neighborhood on the side of the truck.
