Charles White (1918–1979) was a key chronicler of African-American life during a period spanning the 1930s to the 1970s—which, of course, was concurrent with the Civil Rights movement. White was known for a robust, realist style, which spoke to his strengths as a draughtsman, and to his early-career involvement with the WPA. This retrospective, which is arranged chronologically, debuted at the Chicago Art Institute before traveling to MoMA.
