Jmonth, the Nasdaq continues its campaign: Amplify black voices, a multimedia retrospective showcasing works of art and photographs documenting black life. The work is displayed on the seven-story tower of the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square and accompanied by each artist’s profile on to publicize their work.
