  8. Norman Rockwell: Inclusion, Exclusion and Evolving Views on Race

    January 21, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

    Join longtime art educator, Jane Oneail, Founder and President of Culturally Curious, for a Zoom webinar focused on the art of Norman Rockwell. Rockwell is heralded for depicting and defining American life. He often captured bittersweet images of people experiencing universal and relatable feelings of being left out or left behind. Yet, as an artist working in the 20th century, his works are curiously devoid of America’s rich cultural and racial diversity. Toward the end of his career, Rockwell painted several poignant works about race in America that can be seen as an extension of his earlier sense of the power of inclusion and exclusion.

This program is a collaboration of Memorial Hall Library, Stevens Memorial Library, and Tewksbury Public Library, Merrimack Valley Libraries Working Towards Social Justice.

In five sections, Reynolds’s conversational text discusses the influential figures, movements, and events that have propagated racist ideas, beginning in 1415 with the publication of the infamous work that laid the groundwork for subsequent religious justifications of enslaving African peoples and continuing through the “war on drugs” and #BlackLivesMatter...Kendi and Reynolds’s volume is essential, meaningfully accessible reading. ---Publishers Weekly Hosted by Courageous Conversations and Memorial Hall Library.
