In honor of Black History Month, the Colby College Museum of Art brings together a selection of works from the permanent collection by important African-American artists such as Henry Ossawa Tanner, Jacob Lawrence, Romare Bearden, and Kara Walker. Accompanying these works in the Museum’s Theater Gallery is the film “Against the Odds: Artists of the Harlem Renaissance.” This documentary tells the story of this passionately creative movement of the 1920s and 30s and the powerful impact it had on American art and society.
