Black History Month Visual Art Projects

February is Black History Month, and now more than ever I see my friends, colleagues, and just simply people discussing race, gender, society, and the intersection and interaction of both (sometimes politely; sometimes less so). While I strongly feel we should be consciously engaging in critical discussions about race on a near daily basis, I also strongly feel it is important to take the time to recognize the amazing Black voices that have so richly contributed to our society. 

With that spirit in mind, here are a few projects that lend themselves to the celebration of Black History Month.
