"Against All Odds" has the purpose of educating and inspiring people. It celebrates Black invention, creativity, and the rich wellspring of African American culture. It honors the determined spirits who rose above hatred and discrimination to pave the way for future generations. This is an opportunity for artists, regardless of color, to submit art to be shown starting Black History Month, February 2024.
Throughout history, African Americans (and all the diaspora*) have faced immense adversity and obstacles due to racism, discrimination, and oppressive systems designed to limit their potential. Despite this, Black people have made remarkable achievements and contributions in every field - from science and technology, to arts and culture, to business, politics and more.
"Against All Odds" aims to honor and commemorate the monumental achievements of African Americans in the face of Scientific Racism and eugenics. The exhibit will feature works across various media - painting, sculpture, photography, film, music and more - will highlight stories of courage, resilience, excellence and human dignity in the ongoing struggle for racial justice and equality.
The exhibition special events include presentations confronting the racist pseudoscience* of eugenics* and its lasting impacts. The show also celebrates Black invention, creativity, and the rich wellspring of African American culture. Most importantly, it honors the determined spirits who rose above hatred and discrimination to pave the way for future generations.
