A Biographical History of African-American Artists, A-Z
Macklin (art, Jackson State U.) presents biographical entries for 283 (mostly little-known) African-American artists who worked in the period spanning from the mid-19th century to the present. The entries are often extremely brief, sometimes noting little more than birth date and place and the medium the artist worked in. The centerpiece of the volume consists of 54 color plates displaying examples of the paintings, drawings, and sculptures of artists included in the text.
