Time magazine, May 11, 2015 – cover features Devin Allen’s photography of Baltimore Uprising

Photography and graphic arts have played a significant role in human rights movements.
La Tanya and Gabriella guide participants in close looking and interactive discussion centered on works related to the African American liberation struggle from the early 20th century to today.

The conversation focuses on prints and photographs in their private collection, along with images circulating in the streets and on social media as part of the Black Lives Matter movement. By studying these works, participants explore key visual and political strategies employed by artists who have raised awareness of social injustice.

The Art of Black Dissent is available by appointment for small groups. If you are interested in participating in this interactive exhibition and museum program, please complete the form on the Contact Us page.
