Have you seen them?
You see them.
They are icons with warrior roots. They are trees of knowledge.
Legends of the past, inspiration for the future, the fierce energy of now.

Men of Change: Power. Triumph. Truth. profiles revolutionary men—Muhammad Ali, James Baldwin, Ta-Nehisi Coates, W.E.B. Du Bois, Kendrick Lamar, and more—who have altered the history and culture of this country.
When this country strives to render them invisible, they are, instead, uplifted by a culture. You see them here in their true light.
Men of Change was developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service and made possible through the generous support of the Ford Motor Company Fund and Community Services.
