0 Reviews
A guide to resources for use with K-12 students, this selective volume lists substantial, easily accessible resources on African-American visual artists. In total, 639 resources, referencing 1,174 individual artists are annotated and include works about the artists as well as the contexts in which the artist is situated. The publications are generally contemporary sources (after 1981), but earlier materials do exist, providing a baseline for the study of African-American art and its historical development. An introductory essay documents the successes and struggles of African-Americans in the art world followed by detailed annotations, which are arranged in five sections: General, Survey, Children's Books, Artists, and Artist Groups and Movements. The General, Survey, and Children's Books annotations provide important information including the author name, publication date, title, publisher, and an overview of contents. The Artists and Artist Groups and Movements sections function as indexes to the previous three sections. A final section lists addresses of institutions that hold important African- American art collections.
