Vision & Justice

This 3 part series focuses on the crucial interplay of art, justice, and the contestation for citizenship in a radicalized America, from Civil War to the Black Lives Matter Movement, from WWI to the Muslim Ban. The series aims to develop skills of visual literacy—an increasingly vital skill for citizenship in the 21st century. Led by Sarah Lewis, an Assistant Professor of History of Art and Architecture and African and African American Studies at Harvard University.

Sarah Lewis is an Assistant Professor of History of Art and Architecture and African and African American Studies at Harvard University. Before joining the faculty at Harvard, she held curatorial positions at The Museum of Modern Art, New York and the Tate Modern, London and taught at Yale University School of Art.  Lewis’s research interests focus on representations of race in contemporary art and nineteenth- and early twentieth-century America culture and across the Black Atlantic world.
