Elizabeth Catlett’s Black Unity, 1968

“The internationally acclaimed exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983, organized by Tate Modern in London, focuses on art made in the pivotal decades between 1963 and 1983, when issues of race and politics dominated and defined both public and private discourse. Rarely has an exhibition of historical art seemed so contemporary — and provoked so much discussion among its numerous viewers in Europe and the United States.”

— Fine Arts, Fall 2019

Join us at the library for an evening of art and conversation about race, identity, representation, civil rights, and politics. A docent will present images from this exhibit and discuss them. Come early – our most recent art docent talk was filled to capacity! You can read more about this exciting exhibit on the de Young Museum’s website here:
