This survey of more than 100 works in painting, sculpture and photography highlights the response of artists—both African-American and white—to what was arguably the greatest upheaval in American history since the Civil War. The show includes 66 contributors in all, among them Richard Avedon, Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence and Norman Rockwell—a selection that demonstrates the wide cross-section of artists reacting to the struggle for civil rights.
