Abstract:

This book is published to coincide with the exhibition Rising Above: The Kinsey African American Art and History Collection. The documentary value of the Kinsey Collection encompasses 400 years of history and portrays the unparalleled achievements of a people that have succeeded-- often against great odds-- to create its own identity within the American Dream, an economic and social triumph understood and celebrated the world over. The documents and artifacts shown in this exhibition-- the very first display of the Kinsey Collection outside the United States-- pertain to African emigrants and their life-stories, but, beyond a specific people, they speak for their social engagement and success, inclusion, and exclusion, as well as the massive contribution of a minority group in our increasingly globalized world.
