An opening reception on Thursday, Sept. 15, marked the debut of “Still Raising Hell: The Art, Activism and Archives of Camille Billops and James V. Hatch,” the new exhibit at Robert W. Woodruff Library (Emory University).
Billops and Hatch were present as attendees explored the exhibit, drawn from items the couple collected over five decades. The Billops-Hatch archives are widely considered to be one of the most important collections of materials related to 20th-century African American theater, art history and African American artists.
The exhibit, which runs through May 14 in the Schatten Gallery, showcases themes related to creativity, social justice and community, art and activism, and the importance of history and memory.
