Explore the lesser known side of Black History Month through the lens of African-American art. Its role is pivotal, both in social movements and everyday life.

In this special from State Of The Re:Union, find out why it matters to the black community and the United States as a whole. From a poem celebrating Nina Simone and her powerful voice for social change, to the story of the surprising event that sparked the hip-hop cultural revolution, and to unsung heroes of the culinary arts -- State Of The Re:Union provides a rich hour of art as a window into African-American history, and how communities have been transformed by it.
