Opening October 1

Inter | Sectionality: Diaspora Art from the Creole City comes from a commitment to showcase the works of artists that represent a broad spectrum of the African Diaspora. This global exhibition represents 25 Miami based artists, 17 countries and two Charlotte guest artists—Monique Luck and Stephanie J. Woods. This multidisciplinary body of curated work highlights the need for communities to embrace diverse thought and possibilities, at a time when the preservation of social justice is critical to combatting the heightened disparities people of color continue to face.

Reopening October 1

America has the highest incarceration rate in the world. While 37% of the country's population represents people of color, an incongruous 67% make up the prison population. ... and justice for all illuminates this racially unjust system. This exhibition both humanizes – through first-hand experiences – and examines a system that has disproportionately affected people of color. By placing this issue in the forefront, ... and justice for all aspires to create awareness, stimulate conversation, amplify the voices that are often left unheard, and activate change.

Programs & Initiatives

Had Enough? Vote.

Voting has always been a tool of activism. In spite of disenfranchisement efforts that uncannily harken back to mid-20th century struggles, we have fought for our rights in this country through the ballot. The Civil Rights Movement speaks generously to both the influence and significance of civil participation. This election season, the Harvey B. Gantt Center focuses on programs and resources that highlight both the voting process and its momentous impact on our future. Get the resources you need to make your vote count.
