Summary "In the spring of 1963, the New York Art Committee for Tougaloo College established Mississippi's first collection of modern art at Tougaloo, a historically Black college located north of Jackson. As civil rights protests swirled across the fiercely segregated state, the College became an unlikely hub of European and New York School modernism and a place that the collection's founders envisioned as 'an interracial oasis in which the fine arts are the focus and magnet'"-- Provided by publisher.
