The year 2016 marks the 50th anniversary of Black Power, one of the least understood and vilified movements in American history. Yet the movement has had a tremendous impact on issues of race, identity, politics, criminal justice, culture, art, and  education globally. Black Power’s successes and weaknesses have largely molded the  past half century.

     Ready for the Revolution: Education, Arts, and Aesthetics of the Black Power Movement

Between 1966 and 1976, young men and women created countless cultural, educational, and social     programs under the banner of the Black Power ideology. They developed a new black consciousness that galvanized millions of people in the broadest movement in African American history.

 

These 2 exhibitions, curated by Dr. Sylviane A. Diouf, are a partnership between the Schomburg Center and Google Cultural Institute.
