A docent from the de Young Museum provides a visual presentation of Soul of Nation, art made by Black artists during two pivotal decades when issues of race and identity dominated and defined both public and private discourse.
The year 1963 might have marked the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, ending slavery in the South, but poverty, prejudice, racism, segregation and frustration were still rampant in this country. Explore how Black artists responded to these social and cultural conditions. Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power was organized by the Tate Modern in London and exhibited to great critical acclaim at the de Young Museum 2019–2020.
