This exhibition explores Black History Month’s 2020 national theme, The Vote, with a selection of twentieth-century editorial cartoons that address the issue of African American voting rights. Most of the artworks displayed are original drawings from the nationally renowned cartoon collection of the State Historical Society of Missouri. These rarely seen artworks document the long struggle Americans of color have experienced in their attempts to exercise their fundamental rights as citizens.
