Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture: Black Power! Exhibition is Currently On View, Free and Open to the Public

Black Power!
Currently on view
In the first of two onsite Black Power 50 exhibitions celebrating 50 years of the Black Power movement, Black Power! examines the concept introduced by Stokely Carmichael and fellow Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) worker Willie Ricks in June 1966. 

A visual history told through 115 images including photographs and posters, 55 documents and material culture including correspondence, flyers, newsletters, buttons, and other archival material, and documentary video featuring footage from the era, clips from Blaxploitation films, and music, Black Power! explores the multiform and ideologically diverse movement that shaped black consciousness and identity and left an immense legacy that continues to inform the contemporary American landscape.
