Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power

Tuesday, February 18, 2020

View works by African American artists inspired by the Civil Rights struggle for equality and justice, shared by a docent from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.

Join us as a community speaker from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco provides a behind-the-scenes look at this internationally-acclaimed exhibition.

"Soul of a Nation" celebrates art made by Black artists during two pivotal decades when issues of race and identity dominated and defined both public and private discourse.

The de Young’s presentation includes a focus on Bay Area artists whose work promoted personal and cultural pride, collective solidarity and empowerment, and political and social activism.

This presentation is offered in conjunction with the special exhibition "Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power 1963–1983", on display at the de Young Museum through March 15, 2020.
