California-based artist Kota Ezawa’s National Anthem (2018) is a meditation on patriotism and protest. The singlechannel animated video was inspired by the actions of quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other football players who took a knee, sat, raised fists, or locked arms during the national anthem to call attention to police brutality against unarmed black men and social injustice. Ezawa (b. 1969, Germany) creates work that explores and translates significant cultural events into simulations that question the authenticity of both our experiences and retold histories.
Today, African American women are an organized and consequential facet of our body politic. How did they get here? To understand their story is to understand the politics of our own time, setting aside old narratives and learning about the future through black women’s ongoing quest for rights. Vanguard, a new book by Martha S. Jones, tells how they built their movement, which was plagued by ridicule and resistance, and extended to the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
