1/17 - Make Good Trouble: Marching for Change


The exhibition tells the stories of Maryland artists and citizen protestors who took to the street to raise awareness about social injustices in the wake of George Floyd's death. Just as the photo of Emmett Till’s mangled body in the pages of Jet magazine in 1955 propelled the Civil Rights Movement, the video of George Floyd gasping for air and calling for his mother, along with the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, sparked another movement. From small American towns to major international cities, citizens took to the streets with masks on and fists raised to call for an end to systemic racism. Reminiscent of the 1995 Million Man March, the recent Black Lives Matter protests call for action to address the economic and social issues that have adversely affected Black people for centuries.
