Mazza Museum Curator, Dan Chudzinski, wrote, “This is a tribute to Black History. American History. From the indomitable spirit that survived slavery, to the courageous voices that rang out for Civil Rights.”

Featured in the gallery include artwork from “A Time to Act: John F. Kennedy’s Big Speech” illustrated by R. Gregory Christie, “Molly Bannaky” illustrated by Chris K. Soentpiet, and “Barack Obama: Son of Promise, Child of Hope” illustrated by Brian Collier.

In his Curator’s Statement, Chudzinski noted, “This is a celebration of a dream that was shouted from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and echoed forth from the Oval Office. This is an ovation for the artists, poets, athletes, and personas that changed the game forever – changed the game for the better. This is for the Game Changers.”

The Mazza Museum is proud to give voice and venue to the artists and authors who use the power of illustration and the written word to ensure that these stories are not forgotten.
