Organize Your Own is an exhibition and event series presented by Daniel Tucker that addresses historical and contemporary questions of equity, justice, and race relations. The exhibition invites contemporary artists to respond to archival materials relating to the cross-racial social movements organized by white southerners who migrated to northern cities in the 1960s and 70s.
