Augusta Savage and the Harlem Renaissance

Augusta Savage and the Harlem Renaissance

Janet Mandel presents an illustrated talk on Augusta Savage, who overcame poverty, racism, and gender discrimination to become a luminary of the Harlem Renaissance. Her sculptures celebrated African American culture, and her work as an arts educator and political activist catalyzed social change.

 This talk will explore Savage’s lasting legacy by examining her remarkable life and affecting works, as well as those of the younger artists she inspired. It will also prepare you to enjoy the New York Historical Society’s exhibition,  Augusta Savage: Renaissance Woman, on view from May 3 to July 28.

Free and open to all.
