About the exhibition: In a meditative setting to offer an alternative perspective for re-remembering the Civil Rights Movement, The Art of Engagement: Meditation on a Movement positions a selection of art works created or acquired by the Mississippi Museum of Art and Tougaloo College amid the social turbulence of the modern Civil Rights Movement and the decade immediately following. On view through December 14, 2018.

This exhibition and its programming are free and open to the public. Presented by the Art and Civil Rights Initiative, a partnership between Tougaloo College and the Mississippi Museum of Art, underwritten by the Henry Luce Foundation.
