The first exhibition in the UK to show art shaped by the American Civil Rights movement of the 1960s and 1970s opened last month at Turner Contemporary in the seaside town of Margate. It is due to run until May so hopefully there will still be an opportunity to see this inspirational exhibition. We Will Walk - Art and Resistance in the American South brings together civil rights photography, sculptures, paintings and installations by more than twenty African American artists from the Deep South, many of which have never been seen in Europe until now. The exhibition shows us the influence these artists had, and continue to have, on American culture, art that in the words of writer James Baldwin “illuminates the darkness.”
