Article title of the great black leader Frederick Douglass, the term The Color Line refers to the segregation of blacks appeared in the United States after the end of the Civil War in 1865. The ratification of the 13th Amendment would open a new period in American history and slavery gave way to a century of segregation. The exhibition examines the story from the perspective of artistic creation in all its forms by African-American artists, who were themselves victims of this “color line” discriminatory and almost always marginal in their time.
