Black on Black V2
October 6 - November 25, 2017
We’re seeing imagery that reminds us of Los Angeles in 1992, Tulsa in 1921 and Wilmington in 1898, and these incidents seem to show disregard for the lives of people of color. But we bounce back because there is a tremendous strength within our community.
BLACK ON BLACK V2 brings together artwork, performances, and programs that provide comfort, support, and inspiration as we navigate through our day-to-day.
