Art Remakes The World

Civil Rights. Freedom Riders. Black Power. Freedom Summer.

These actions and movements helped power the 1960s and 1970s as a defining era of political and cultural shifts.

How did Black visual artists reflect, celebrate, examine, or critique the Civil Rights Movement in depictions of the struggle against oppression.

Join Dr. Denise Rogers, professor and curator of Mesa College’s World Cultures Artwork Collection, for a stimulating discussion on the role of artists during the movement for civil rights and in the continuing struggle for social change.
