Abstract

The Fitzwilliam Museum has skillfully delivered its most important exhibition to date: Black Atlantic: power, people, resistance (hereafter Black Atlantic). It is a triumph of curatorial collaboration and expert research, carefully crafted into a narrative that disrupts our historical understanding of Richard Fitzwilliam, the founding of the Museum, and our perceptions of European visual culture in the complicity of perpetuating and justifying the transatlantic enslavement of African peoples.
