“Black History, Black Future” will feature a variety of styles and mediums reflecting African American culture, arts and entertainment and the ongoing struggle for equality. Featured pieces in the exhibition include works by Tayshaun Small and Mikayle Morrison, both currently AP studio art students mentored by Joseph, himself a Dillard alumnus.
