TATM Virtual Tour: Black Is Beautiful

In this exhibition are over forty large-scale color and black-and-white photographs by Kwame Brathwaite. Docents Ray Henney, Cindy Patrick, and Tana McPherson will discuss how his work helped advance one of the most influential cultural movements of the 1960s, "Black Is Beautiful," when black women and men turned to natural hairstyles and African-inspired clothing.
