Melvin Edwards included in Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties, at the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH, co-curated by Teresa A. Carbone and Kellie Jones and organized by the Brooklyn Museum.

Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties focuses on painting, sculpture, graphics, and photography from a decade defined by social protest and American race relations. In observance of the fiftieth anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, this exhibition considers how sixty-six of the decade’s artists, including African Americans and some of their white, Latino, Asian American, Native American, and Caribbean contemporaries, used diverse and aesthetic approaches to address the struggle for racial justice.
