Event description

Description

Join historian and educator Jamon Jordan, as we explore powerful artworks by Black artists who formed collectives during the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements of the 1960-70s. These collectives, made up of artists working together in distinct groups, created art specifically for African American audiences that asserted Black identity, Black Power and racial justice.

This exhibition includes 34 paintings, sculptures, installations and photographs produced by artists working both collectively and independently to address social and political issues surrounding the Civil Rights & Black Power Movements and today.

Situated within the story of these collectives is the Detroit 1967 Rebellion.

WE WILL MEET AT THE JOHN R. ENTRANCE!
