About Men of Change: Power. Triumph. Truth
Twenty-five contemporary artists were given an invitation to reflect and celebrate the significance of ground-breaking individuals through their own creative vision. These works of art serve as a counterpoint to the sumptuously backlit photographs and inspiring quotes. Together, they honor the truth of the African-American experience in history and today.
While these men made their mark in a variety of disciplines—politics, sports, science, entertainment, business, religion, and more—all understood the value of asserting their own agency by owning their own stories. “Men of Change” was developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and made possible through the generous support of the Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services.
