Evening for Educators: Social Justice/Injustice

Educators engage with work by African American artists who celebrate black culture and achievement and confront segregation, cultural erasure, and inequality. New generations of artists continue to grapple with these injustices while promoting the beauty, humanity, and vivacity of black communities. Following the keynote conversation with collector Harriet Kelley and art historian Philip Townsend, tour the exhibition and attend hands-on workshops
