Seriously, it is. The People of Color in European Art History blog is fighting racism using its curator’s skills – the ability to discuss art history and find historical artwork for display. It is almost single-handedly disproving the popular idea that people of color didn’t exist in Europe. By showing us the primary sources.

The world, of course, has responded with rage and death threats. So, yes, art history is brave. And important.
