Community Folk Art Center to Host ‘A Love Supreme: Black Cultural Expression and Political Activism of the 1960s and 1970s’
The Community Folk Art Center (CFAC) will be displaying Syracuse University Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center’s (SCRC) traveling exhibit of “A Love Supreme: Black Cultural Expression and Political Activism of the 1960s and 1970s” (A Love Supreme). The exhibition was previously on display at SCRC from January through August 2023. “A Love Supreme” reimagines the Black Power and the Black Arts Movements by intentionally unmuting a multitude of Black writers, leaders and artists from SCRC’s manuscript and archival collections as well as the rare book and printed materials collection.
“We are excited to partner with CFAC, a fellow Syracuse University Coalition of Museum and Art Centers member, to travel this exhibition to their center. In so doing, we ensure the local community has an opportunity to experience and engage with these pivotal and inspiring stories of Black history and experience,” says Nicolette A. Dobrowolski, director of the special collections research center. A portion of the full exhibition will be on display at CFAC, located at 805 E. Genesee Street, from September 11 through mid-December. For more information on related programming or exhibition hours, please visit communityfolkartcenter.org/.
