The Activist Collector: An African-American Woman's Journey from Newark to Pre-Apartheid South Africa

With Christa Clarke of the W.E.B. DuBois Institute at Harvard (and before that the Newark Museum) on the path-breaking collector, Lida Clanton Broner.

The Newark History Society will return to NJPAC at NICO's Kitchen + Bar on March 5 at 6pm with The Activist Collector: An African-American Woman’s Journey from Newark to Pre-Apartheid South Africa, presented by Mary Sue Price and Christa Clarke. Admission is free. The talk chronicles and life and work of path-breaking collector Lida Clanton Broner, a Newarker who voyaged to South Africa in 1938 and returned with a remarkable collection of art. Much of Broner’s collection and personal archive were donated to the Newark Museum. Clarke, of the W.E.B. DuBois Institute at Harvard University, is a specialist in historic and contemporary African art and a former senior curator of African arts at the Newark Museum. Price, who worked at the Newark Museum for four decades, was its sixth director and CEO, retiring in 2013.
