    "Las Rebeldes: Stories of Strength and Struggle in Southeastern Michigan" takes its inspiration from a Fall course taught by professor MarĂ­a Cotera at the University of Michigan. Professor Cotera and a group of students conducted oral history interviews with women who have been active in community politics in Southeastern Michigan since the 1960s. The students are working with professor Hannah Smotrich and her Exhibition Design course at UM's Penny Stamps School of Art and Design to create an exhibit based on the materials and stories they collected in the Fall.
