The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in partnership with The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

Black Futures:  Identity & Audacity

What is America’s visual mold of identity?  What is your identity? What does it mean to be Black and alive right now?  What does your Black future look like?

You are invited to bear witness to the growing narrative of Black Futures through the transformative works of art in our current exhibition, Double ID, which focuses on the inner self, identity, and the evolving spirit of black men.  Join the artistic echoes within our communities who are exploring the power and potential of black futures through art – literal, visual, and sonic. Whet your appetite with brunch provided by Chef Dom and be inspired to be your authentic self.
