The “Say It Loud” exhibition celebrated the creative work of distinguished members of NOMA (the National Organization of Minority Architects). On display at the Center for Architecture in New York City, the exhibition shone a spotlight on the contributions of Black, Hispanic and Asian professionals across the United States. The exhibition came at a critical juncture, given the increasing push for equality and full acknowledgement of the achievements of people of color in all sectors of society.
