30 Americans, An art exhibition featuring black contemporary artists recently opened at the Joslyn Art Museum.

The show is the first major exhibit centering artists of the African diaspora in the history of the Joslyn.

Major themes include the power dynamics and imbalances that perpetuate racially-motivated discrimination and oppression, while also holding space for admiration of the Black body and mind.

A Community committee was created to curate the exhibit and develop  programming for further discussion.
