brooklynmuseum There’s much more to the art of the Civil Rights era than the iconic photography. Many artists used wide-ranging aesthetic approaches to address the struggle for racial justice. This is the final weekend to experience all the art and #activism of ‘Witness’, which ends Sunday (7/13). 3w

Discussions of #activism and art communities during this time will give new context to works currently on view -- such as his photograph, "Chinese New Years on Mott Street, 1989." 1mon
