I am a particular fan of African American art and its progression in America. This text wonderfully surveys the movement of Black art from their striving to create art that resembled that of White artists to creating burgeoning new forms that reminisced of Ancestral lives and immortalized the struggles and triumphs of Black life in the times these artists created. What I liked most about the book was how the author weaved a story between each artists featured. From the beginning artists to the last, she showed how they were related in creations, hometowns, schooling, or acquaintance. This was powerful because it showed the continuum of Black artists and that Black art and its progress is not stagnant. This text demonstrated how the inspiration from one artist to the next continues a tradition whose roots run deep. The art work featured in the book was awesome and the short description help ground the purpose of the piece. The author also exposed readers to much art language and provides a glossary of these terms for easy reference. The book, being a survey book, is divided into eras as subtopics with Black art being the overarching topic. The artists, as mentioned before, are organized for earliest to latest and their relationships are shown within the text as how they knew each other or how their particular creations are the same. Great book!
