End Credits (2012-2016) by renowned artist Steve McQueen pays homage to the African American singer, actor, and Civil Rights activist Paul Robeson (1898-1976). An anti-imperialist committed to fighting inequality, Robeson was blacklisted by the FBI in the 1950s. During the McCarthy era, the FBI compiled thousands of pages on Robeson, now a public archive which McQueen used to create this video. End Credits opens at Pérez Art Museum Miami on November 17 and will be on view through March 11, 2018.  www.pamm.org.
