The exhibition "Soul of a Nation" celebrates the work of more than 60 Black artists, made during two revolutionary decades in American history, beginning in 1963 at the height of the Civil Rights movement. In a wide and compelling range of works, "Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power" brings into focus the varying aesthetic strategies and debates around what it has meant to be a Black artist. Organized by Tate Modern in London, the exhibition includes artists from across the United States, with sections devoted to groups in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and, for the MFAH presentation, Houston.

Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display until August 30.
