Though the first African American artists were slaves, they brought with them ancient artistic traditions and an aesthetic unique to their African origins. Wood carving, pottery making, and architecture were just a few of the skills they practiced. After the Civil War a new class of African American artist - craftsmen, painters, sculptors, photographers - was born, and their influence led to a development in Black art that lasts to this day. This volume is a visual celebration of African American art from its beginnings in Colonial America up to the present. From the early folk art to contemporary prints, paintings, and sculptures, here is the remarkable fruit of America's black artistic heritage.
