A new exhibit at The National Museum of Women in The Arts showcases the often unsung contributions of black women –many of them local– to modern, abstract art. Kojo talks to two women who brought the “Magnetic Fields” exhibit to Washington, D.C. about the role our region played in developing black, female, abstract artists.
