Gallery Walk & Talk with the Artist
Tour the exhibition Struggle: Portraits of Civil Rights and Black Power with the photographer behind the portraits, J.M. Giordano. Giordano has photographed the well-known, as well as unsung, freedom fighters of the era in formal portraits. While historic images of civil rights and Black Power leaders exist through photojournalism, Giordano composes portraits as a statement of the prominence of these individuals. His work establishes a new visual history of this pivotal American era. On view include Marylanders Dr. Helena Hicks, Simeon Booker, Dr. Maulana Karenga, and Robert Houston. An informal Q&A follows. Part of the museum's MLK Weekend 2015 programming.
