Black Artists in America explores African American art during the turbulence of the late 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s. In the 1960s, Black artists who came of age during World War II and the civil rights movement continued to challenge inequities in the art world. They created brilliant and powerful works of art that celebrated their racial identity, communicated with Black audiences, and participated in the struggle for equality. With works by Romare Bearden, Alma Thomas, Charles White, and many others, the show considers how Black American artists responded to growing civil unrest, challenging the social issues of the era. Black Artists in America is curated by Professor Earnestine Jenkins, University of Memphis. The exhibition is organized by Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Memphis.
