The Color Line, Afro-American artists and segregation in the U.S.A

The musée du quai Branly will review the history of discriminations in the US during the XIX century from an original approach.

From Tuesday 04 October 2016 to Sunday 15 January 2017

Musée du quai Branly

Inspired by the title of the article written by Frederick Douglass, a famous Afro-American abolitionist in the XIX century, ‘The Color Line’ will focus on the history of discrimination against blacks in the US in the wake of the 1865 Secession War.

The musée du quai Branly has decided to use arts to present this important phase of history: through the eyes of Afro-American artists who expressed themselves on the issue during this period.

About two hundred works - sculptures, paintings, cartoons, pictures, films and even music – will provide a rich and diversified event allowing for the discovery of artists who have themselves been victims of racial discrimination of marginalization. This will be a thrilling experience. Do not miss it!
