Black Power art show opens in London – euronews

A new exhibition of the art that came out of the American Civil Rights movement as well as the politics of black identity has opened at Londons iconic Tate modern museum.

Called Soul of a Nation: the art of Black Power, it examines the triumphs and tragedies of the civil right movement in the US from the 1960s to the 1980s.

What are the limits or expansiveness of a question or a subject area like Black Art, is that theres not one answer to the question we use this exhibition and were led by the artists, and used each artist and let them tell their version of the answer to that question, or allowed them to reject the question, Zoe Whitley, the co-curator of the exhibition said.

Black Power was a rallying cry for African American pride, autonomy and solidarity, drawing inspiration from newly independent African nations.

Some of the works presented featured some key black figures, who used their platform to speak out against injustices faced by black people at the height of the civil rights movement.

The show runs until October the twenty second.
