You’re invited to join us as we talk to New York Times bestselling author Jason Mott about his recent novel Hell of a Book.

VIRTUAL: Art by African Americans: From the Great Migration to the Age of Black Lives Matter

Wed Feb 21 & Thu Feb 22 | 7:00pm

Between the two world wars, millions of African Americans set out on an odyssey known as the Great Migration. In the course of this journey, they created a new identity that would alter the landscape of modern art. Part I of this story will explore the rich contributions these pioneers made to American culture from the Harlem Renaissance through the Civil Rights Movement. Part II will continue the saga from the age of Black Power protests of the ‘60s through the present day. Registration required.
