The Continual Struggle

The American Freedom Movement and the Seeds of Social Change
January 17, 2022 - March 27, 2022

The George W. Bush Presidential Center will host “The Continual Struggle: The American Freedom Movement and the Seeds of Social Change” by artist Brian Washington from Jan. 17 to March 27, 2022, in Freedom Hall at the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum. The exhibit is made possible by the generous support of our presenting sponsor, The Boeing Company.

“The Continual Struggle: The American Freedom Movement and the Seeds of Social Change,” a collection that was 13 years in the making, documents all phases of the civil rights movement, a pivotal time in America’s ongoing fight to eliminate segregation and other forms of race-based disenfranchisement. The 25-piece exhibit uses visual art as a way of educating, storytelling, powerfully recalling an era of protests against injustice and inequality.

Brian Washington is a world-class, self-taught artist whose work mostly reflects our Nation’s struggle for equality and racial reconciliation. He’s also an award-winning attorney, arts advocate, and intellectual.

Admission to view “The Continual Struggle” is free to the public on January 17, 2022. After January 17, admission is included with the purchase of a ticket to visit the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum’s permanent exhibit on the 43rd President of the United States, which includes steel from the World Trade Center and a full-scale replica of the Oval Office. To visit, please schedule your time here.
