The Diggs Gallery of Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) is pleased to present "Truth Be Told: For Freedoms 50 States Initiative" curated by Diggs Gallery Director Endia Beal.

The Diggs Gallery partnered with artist and activist Hank Willis Thomas and the For Freedoms 50 State Initiative to join a network of artists and institutions who will produce nationwide public art installations, exhibitions, and local community dialogues. These conversations will inject nuanced, artistic thinking into public discourse. The national initiative reflects how art institutions become civic forums for action and discussion of values, place, and patriotism.

The featured artists in this exhibition include Juan Logan, William Paul Thomas, Lien Truong, and Charles Edward Williams. These North Carolina based artists are redefining our history and revealing our untold truth by tackling the social nuances that effect our everyday lives. From a visual representation of power and hierarchical structures to the exploration of contemporary identity, the exhibition forces the viewer to reflect on our national history while viewing the unseen and unheard voices of our past, present, and future.
