This year marks the 50th anniversary of a civil rights milestone that few may be familiar with: the publication of The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. It was the first full-color picture book featuring an African-American protagonist—a boy named Peter who explores his neighborhood after the first snowfall of the year. Discover more than 80 sketches, paintings, and photographs by the pioneering author and illustrator of beloved children’s books in a major exhibition recognizing his life and work.
