More on the Exhibition:

Lest We Forget: Black American and Cultural Memory in the Age of the Hyperreal explores the depictions of African Americans — both celebratory and derogatory imagery, in high and low art forms — in American popular culture from the past 150 years. Positive interventions of and by Black people are staged among the disturbing materials associated with racism and negative stereotypes: a late 1960s photograph of artists standing outside the Selma Burke Art Center is juxtaposed with the 1899 Amateur Minstrel Guide; literary art journals published by African Americans sit alongside a copy of The Fellowship Forum, a 1920s weekly newspaper that celebrated white supremacy.

The arranged body of work is part of the collection of James Kidd and is on view for the first time in the 1839 Gallery.

Organized by Kilolo Luckett, acting curator, and presented by the August Wilson Center – African American Cultural Center.
