Saturday Session: Soul of a Nation

During the rise of the Black Power movement, many Black artists were asking fundamental questions about their role: Should a work of art communicate a direct political message? Could it be abstract? What audience should be addressed? Is there a ‘Black art’ or a ‘Black aesthetic’?

In this workshop, join fellow educators as we explore these questions and the role of artists in the civil rights movement, then delve deeper into these ideas through various written-word strategies.
