Black History Month 
Civil War to Civil Rights:
How African American Artists Engage the Past
Thursday, Feb. 15 • 7 pm • Free

Through the critical lens of the political, legal, and cultural changes that marked the transition from slavery to the Civil War to the Civil Rights period, this presentation will examine depictions of the multifaceted and highly politicized dimensions of “race” and American identity in the artistic production of African American artists.

Artists such as Elizabeth Catlett, Faith Ringgold, Kara Walker, Fred Wilson, Kehinde Wiley, and Hank Willis, among many others, will be discussed.
