Today at the De Young. This was a difficult exhibit. The art work was INCREDIBLE but the museum upset me.
It felt to me, like the museum was just kind of "checking the diversity box" on their programming. There was no commentary or responsibility taken on the social justice side of things.
Maybe it was just insult to injury, but don't use a white hair white man to give a school tour to mostly students of color about the African Diaspora. *
