Aaron Douglas

The Harlem Renaissance and Transatlantic Modernism, The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s blockbuster exhibition, defines the Black cultural movement as a contemporary force.
These 10 exhibitions and installations feature the contributions African Americans and other members of the Black diaspora have made to art, culture, and social justice.
Painted for the Hall of Negro Life at the Texas Centennial Exposition, Aaron Douglas's Aspiration (1936) shows a way for African Americans to forge a hopeful future.
