The National Center for the Study of Civil Rights and African-American Culture at Alabama State University is exhibiting a series of art of the 1956 Montgomery Bus Boycott titled  “I Too Am America: African-American Issues and Events in the Nation’s History & Culture.”

The virtual art exhibition features artists from the Levi Watkins Learning Center’s Permanent Collection at ASU.

University Archivist Dr. Howard Robinson said the ongoing art exhibition highlights the unique and creative cultural response to racial injustice against African Americans that has produced a more distinctive and vibrant American identity.

“The art exhibition demonstrates that African Americans have been at the nexus of major events, periods, or episodes of United States history, have been voices of conscience in challenging the nation to fulfill its democratic ideals, and have been builders of the country’s infrastructure,” Robinson said.

The virtual art exhibition can be seen on Facebook (asu@civilrightscenter) and YouTube Premiere (on both the National Center and University’s channels).
