We Will Walk – Art and Resistance in the American South is the first exhibition of its kind in the United Kingdom, revealing a little-known history shaped by the Civil Rights period in the 1950s and 60s. It brings together sculptural assemblages, paintings, and quilts by more than twenty African American artists from Alabama and surrounding states. Featured artists lived through the Civil Rights struggle and its aftermath, often in conditions of poverty. This art is characterized by the remaking and reuse of materials through necessity, custom, culture, and innovation as well as a vital connection to place and nature. The exhibition also features Civil Rights music and documentary photographs that reveal the links between the art and its context. Enjoy a virtual tour of this original exhibition.
