The complex histories of the African Diaspora have been told by artists for centuries.
On view through July 17, 2022, in the National Gallery's West Building, the exhibition Afro-Atlantic Histories
explores the historical experiences and cultural formations of Black and African people since the 17th century. These narratives are brought to life by artists from Africa, Europe, the Americas, and the Caribbean, including US artists Jacob Lawrence, Alma Thomas,
and Romare Bearden.
