1995 sculpture by Melvin Edwards called "Breaking of the Chains". Part of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Promenade in San Diego, the sculpture is accompanied by the following quote from King: "Along the way of life, someone must have sense enough and morality enough to cut off the chain of hate. This can only be done by projecting the ethic of love to the center of our lives."

Melvin Edwards' "Lynch Fragments" Very powerful work. @columbusmuseum #columbusmuseumofart #melvinedwards I wish the High Museum would bring this artist to Atlanta.

Incredible exhibition at the @Tate, Soul of a Nation: #soulofanation Art in the age of black power black artists working in America in the two decades after 1963 #wow faves were #AliceNeel who also has work @victoriamirogallery #MelvinEdwards #ElizabethCatlett #CarolynLawrence #RoyDeCarava and #DavidHammons a must see

William T. Williams quoted @guardian for "Soul of a Nation" at the @tate Modern:
"I hope the viewer will see 65 different artists working in a time period, with different ideas and interests and technique – skilled at what they’re doing. I hope it gives them some sense of the history of the medium and the history of art in general."
He goes on: "If it gives them some sense of what the soul of a nation is, that would be interesting. But that implies a bigger burden than just being members of a nation."

Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power @tate Modern features over 150 works from 60 artists, including Roy DeCarava, Betye Saar, Archibald Notley and Barkley Hendricks, whose #1974 painting What's Going On  is pictured. The #show is a survey of era-defining American artworks, from #paintings to #murals, posters, sculptures and photographs: powerful artistic responses to the cultural shifts and political unrest from the Civil Rights Movement onwards. #soulofanation #artintheageofblackpower #tatemodern #civilrightsmovement #roydecarava #archibaldnotley #melvinedwards #betyesaar #archibaldnotley #rainbowmojo
