Afro-American Studies | Afro American Art II: Afro American Artists
A352 | 0325 | William Taylor


Students will study the development of the Afro-American visual
artist from a craftsperson in slavery to national recognition as
artist of the mainstream in the 1980s.  As the class progresses in
each Afro-American movement time period, the influence of the social
and political moods on the Afro-American visual artist will be
included in the course--thus enabling the student to have a better
understanding of how and why the Black artists produced as they
did/do and what meaning the works had to the artists and their
viewers.
