Celebrate Black Art and Artists for Black History Month

Witness the enduring mark Black artists have made on American art through more than two centuries of Black art in our collection — from 19th century painters Joshua Johnson and Robert Seldon Duncanson to modern and contemporary artists Faith Ringgold, Alma Thomas, Romare Bearden, Kara Walker, and more.

Bring art into your Black History Month curriculum and celebrate the achievements of Black artists past and present. Our education resources can teach your students about important historical periods in our nation’s history and help you facilitate meaningful conversations about race in America.
