Charles White’s journey as an artist, activist, and educator took him to Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and beyond. We will explore how White shaped and was shaped by various communities, and how he strove to use his art to “ally itself with the forces of liberation.” This session meets at the entrance to Charles White: A Retrospective, Floor 3.
