Telling A People’s Story: African-American Children’s Illustrated Literature

January 30-June 30, 2018

Telling A People’s Story looks at African-American cultural and historical identity through the lens of children’s illustrated literature. Until the last quarter of the 20th century, African-American children’s illustrated literature was a largely under-represented field garnering little attention by mainstream publishing and readership. Featuring more than 100 original artworks from African-American children’s illustrated literature, these works are produced by some of the biggest names in the field. Collectively, the many treasures produced by authors and illustrators contribute to a complex exploration of the African-American experience.
