Oh Freedom! Beauford Delaney

"Oh Freedom!" is "an interdisciplinary resource that helps K–12 teachers and students discover the history, influence, and legacy of the Civil Rights movement by exploring more than three dozen artworks from the collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture." The Smithsonian has included Beauford's Can Fire in the Park in the group of works it is using to teach African-American Civil Rights through American Art.

Covid-19 delays long-planned documentary on Black Abstract Expressionist painter Beauford Delaney

Freelance writer Karen Chernick recently published an article about Beauford's gravesite in Atlas Obscura. Inspired by the conversations we had as part of her research, she decided to write this piece about the full-length documentary, So Splendid a Journey, for which the COVID-19 pandemic is contributing to delayed production.
