Black Survival Guide, or How to Live Through a Police Riot

Apr 21, 2022 - Jul 22, 2022

In 2018, the Delaware Art Museum commissioned artist Hank Willis Thomas to respond to the powerful and community-changing public response that followed the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4, 1968. Combining historic newspaper photographs with the historic pamphlet Black Survival Guide, or How to Live Through a Police Riot, Thomas created a powerfully unique physical and visual viewing experience. The resulting work of art sheds light on the past in the context of today.

Black Survival Guide, or How to Live Through a Police Riot is organized by
