We’re excited to design the next wave of the Art of Black Dissent. As we prepare to take our pop-up exhibition/dialogue program to New Haven public schools and libraries, we are developing our personal collections of vernacular materials centered on the black liberation struggle.
Last night we reviewed our latest acquisitions which include posters, graphic novels, comic books, photography, magazines, newspapers, children’s books, and more. Several of our objects pertain to the 1960s era. Of course, that’s great. But we want to engage our current moment as well. So we are now concentrating on acquiring more visual culture of the Black Lives Matter movement.
More to come!
