The Tate Modern has commissioned a series of original films, created by black filmmakers tate_shorts_1and directors about African American artists in the civil rights movement. The short films are presented alongside Tate Modern’s latest exhibition, Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power and shine a bright light on the vital contribution of Black artists during the civil rights movement.

tate_shorts_2Among others, the series includes a film created by British Filmmaker, Cecile Emeke, inspired by the work of Faith Ringgold whose paintings and quilted narrative pieces depicted the racial, political and social tensions she experienced as an artist working in Harlem in the 60s and 70’s.
