This exhibition draws from the Madison Art Collection and James Madison’s Montpelier, and includes prints, cultural objects, and artefacts documenting the African-American experience from the West African slave trade to the height of the American civil rights era. Featuring the voices of those who suffered under slavery and fought for equality, Breaking Chains brings focus to difficult aspects of our nation’s history while celebrating the diversity of the American experience.
