This cultural keynote by Thelma Golden discusses the impact of different artistic influences and artwork on race and society. Golden explains how we should examine museums and pieces of art as open dialogues that can allow for communication and expression of ideas.

While people may consider paintings and illustrations as purely things to visually examine and appreciate, Golden explains how we should look beyond that common way of thinking to view pieces of art as sources of inspiration and ideas. Focusing on artwork by African American artists, Golden is able to showcase the profound emotions and striking influence that can come from a single piece of artwork, and how these significant images can subsequently change ideas within society and impact the way people view certain subjects such as race.
