Black Then - Black Culture was born from the darkness of slavery, but in the midst of the darkness, so many extraordinary things have risen.
Black Now - Black Culture is celebrated across this country and across the globe - all that Black Culture is, all of its fruits are consumed by the world over. At the same time, people of Black Culture are marginalized by decades of injustice - in law, education, in wealth and in opportunity.
Black in the Middle - Black Culture is defined in the search and demand for Equality.
Black Then, Black Now, Black In the Middle…
Black Culture is as American as Apple Pie and the American Flag. It is the fabric.
Why is Black not equated with American? Why is the American Dream a dream deferred?
Black Culture was born in darkness, but so much greatness has come in spite of it. Beautiful, expressive, magical.
The exhibition is open to the public February 5 - February 28 with an opening reception Friday, February 5 from 6-9pm.
