In honor of MLK Day, we are sharing this work entitled “Your Choice” by Emma Amos which depicts Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X alongside one another. The work itself can be displayed in two different orientations, with one figure facing upward while the other is upside down. No matter how you choose to view it, Amos presents the two men as connected and inseparable, capturing the essence of contrasting philosophies bound by a shared pursuit of racial justice.
Today is your last chance to see this work on view in "Emma Amos: Color Odyssey." 
"Your Choice," 1998, by Emma Amos (Amos Family, courtesy of RYAN LEE Gallery, New York)

The Brooklyn Museum community is greatly saddened to learn of the death of Emma Amos (1937 – 2020). A pioneering artist, dedicated teacher, and committed activist for racial and gender equity, Amos was a vital presence in the artworld for more than fifty years. The Brooklyn Museum is proud to have celebrated her accomplishments in major thematic exhibitions including Witness: Art and Civil Rights in the Sixties (2014) and Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power (2018). Amos’s remarkable 1966 self-portrait Flower Sniffer was included in our 2017 show We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-1985. Featuring the artist as a solitary, contemplative, and perhaps apprehensive young woman, Flower Sniffer captures an understated but determined act of rebellion, as Amos famously said, "For me, a Black woman artist, to walk into the studio was a political act." In Flower Sniffer, Amos resolutely announces the creative ambitions that defined her career.⁠⠀
