The Activist Collector: Lida Clanton Broner’s 1938 Journey from Newark to South Africa
How did Broner—a working class mother—come to be a globally connected activist? Broner’s remarkable story is the subject of this book, which draws upon a deep visual and documentary record now held in the collection of The Newark Museum of Art.
This extraordinary archive includes more than 150 objects, ranging from beadwork and pottery to mission school crafts, acquired by Broner in South Africa, along with her diary, correspondence, scrapbooks, and hundreds of photographs with handwritten notations.
