Back to Black - Art, Cinema and the Racial Imaginary presents a major survey of the Black Arts Movement in the US, Jamaica and Britain in the 1960s and 70s. Tracing its cultural impact in painting, sculpture, photography and drawing, it also focusses on the fashion, music and film tha eerged over the two decades.”
