Black Culture 2020

Black culture, also known as African-American culture, is arguably the most influential in the United States and recognized in spaces world-wide. From the 18th Century to post-emancipation, African-Americans' ancestral culture continued to evolve, as distinctive traditions or radical innovations in music, art, literature, fashion, religion, cuisine, and other fields. While Black people are still a large minority in the U.S., Black culture has become a significant part of American culture and yet, at the same time, remains a distinct cultural body.

This art exhibition is a reflection of Black culture throughout history, the diversity of its community, and its influence in the world we know today.
