Art by African Americans: From the Great Migration to the Age of Black Lives Matter Part II

Wednesday, June 2nd at 7:00pm
Facilitator: Janet Mandel
Between the two world wars, millions of African Americans set out on an odyssey known as the Great Migration. In the course of this journey, they created a new identity that would alter the landscape of modern art. Part II will continue the saga from the age of Black Power protests of the ‘60s through the present day. Join us as we celebrate the rich contributions these pioneers made to American culture that continue to astonish art lovers today.
