Exploring what it meant to be a Black artist during the tumultuous era that spanned the 1960s and the Civil Rights movement to the early 1980s and the emergence of identity politics, this landmark exhibition’s final chapter unites key works by more than 60 Black artists such as William T. Williams, Lorraine O’Grady, and Betye Saar, including an added section on Houston’s vital Black art scene with a number of works from the Museum’s collection.
