What to know

The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas will host a solo exhibition by Rex Deloney titled “Brothers by One: The Black Athlete and Social Justice.” This exhibition will open Thursday, Sept. 24, and run through Saturday, Jan. 2, 2021.

DeLoney's show highlights the many ways that black athletes used their celebrity status and media coverage to give attention to social justice issues; from boxer Muhammad Ali and his stance against the Vietnam War to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem as a statement against police brutality.
