    Event description

    What is the role of artists in civil rights movements? What movement stories can artists uniquely capture, and what tools do they call on to imagine new social futures? Join the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities (CAH) for an artist panel discussion for CAH’s current exhibition, Legacy: Civil Rights at 60, which commemorates the 60th anniversary of the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This juried exhibition explores how DC artists have been influenced by this landmark legislation, which aimed to prohibit discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
