Special Tour for Immanuel Members
A Site of Struggle
American Art against Anti-Black Violence
Wednesday, June 29, 2022, 6:45 pm
The Block Museum, Northwestern U. campus
A one-hour tour for this highly praised exhibit has been arranged for church members and friends by Immanuel’s Anti-Racism Committee. The exhibit explores how artists through works created between 1895 and 2013 have engaged with America’s centuries-long history of anti-Black violence. Themes range from slavery and lynching to suppression of civil rights struggles, contemporary mob violence, and police brutality.
It’s a short walk from the campus parking lot to the museum. Please arrive no later than 7 pm as the museum closes at 8:00. (Staff advises that an hour is enough time to see the whole exhibit.) Weather willing, we’ll gather after the tour at nearby picnic tables to share our thoughts and reflections and enjoy some simple refreshments. If you plan to attend, RSVP to email@example.com.
