Black Protest on the Streets & on the Web



Yale University, November 5, 2015

Visual culture remains a chief means for communicating calls for racial justice and building solidarity. Through graffiti, murals, digital art, photography, posters, zines, and other creative forms, activists reach others.

Sometimes museums display these works. But often this political art remains outside of mainstream institutions. Instead, it circulates through our streets, mass media, blogs, and various social networking platforms, such as Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

To spotlight this range of dynamic practices we have produced a PowerPoint presentation that is part of our pop-up exhibition and program. This sampling, which is arranged both chronologically and thematically, focuses on the contemporary visual culture of the African- American liberation struggle since 2010.
