Soul of a Nation
Freedom Now, 1963, Reginald Gammon, The Broad
Art in the Age of Black Power 1963-1983
As per protocol, when I visit a new city I always research the current museum exhibits in advance and create an itinerary for my “museum day”. This is how I came across the Soul of a Nation exhibit at the Tate Modern in 2017. After viewing the collection, my artistic life was changed - I left wanting to know more - more about the stories behind each piece and their creators.

The exhibit is currently on show at The Broad and once again I found myself standing in front of powerful paintings, photographs and sculptures that whispered to my curiosity and fed my soul.
