Art AfterWords - The Autobiography of Malcolm X

Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2021, 5:30 p.m.

The National Portrait Gallery and the Library would like to invite you to a virtual conversation about public remembrance and the history of Washington, D.C. Join us as we analyze a portrait of Malcolm X, and discuss the related book, The Autobiography of Malcolm X by Alex Haley. 

We will be joined by the Portrait Gallery’s Curator of Photographs Leslie Ureña, and our Instagram Artist-in-Residence, Bradford Grant, as they discuss the exhibition, Block by Block: Naming Washington, which explores the nomenclature of the city's spaces.
