February 6-April 22, 2001

Jacob Lawrence is considered one of the foremost American painters of the twentieth century. An African-American artist who grew up in Harlem during the Depression, Lawrence began his career around 1935 in the lingering, vibrant atmosphere of the Harlem Renaissance. This exhibition features two narrative series executed by the artist, which document the struggles of Douglass and Tubman, two renowned nineteenth-century abolitionists.

The exhibition is organized by the Hampton University Museum in Hampton. Virginia
