Explore the creative achievements of African American artists and examine the expression of personal and collective identities in a nation marked by a history of racial inequality.

This exhibition—which presents paintings, sculpture, photographs, drawings, and prints as well as furniture, ceramics, silver, and textiles—accompanies a major catalogue edited by Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw, Associate Professor of American Art at the University of Pennsylvania. Also, the Museum’s Division of Education will offer guided tours and gallery talks, lectures and conversations with artists, school group tours and a teacher resource guide, and family celebrations in addition to collaborative community events in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
