Inspiring Images of the 19th Century
Erin Egresitz, a ranger for the Boston African American National Historical Site, will lead an interactive discussion exploring the role of African Americans in 19th century art. The discussion will center on images and focus on African Americans as subjects in art, and prominent African American artists of the 19th century. Since so much of art is subjective, it is our hope that you come with to share your thoughts and reactions to these works of art.
