Portraying the Black American Experience

by Art21February 14, 2018 2:14:18 total runtime

An artist’s identity and experiences implicitly inform, and in some cases even drive, the work they create. In capturing the contemporary Black American experience through their work and practice, artists have ensured that fundamental narratives of American history are represented in the art historical discourse as a record and guide for generations to come.

Whether bringing attention to important issues that news headlines omit, or celebrating the history and heroes that brought us to our present moment, the artists in this playlist expand and illuminate the conversations we have around bias, race, and representation.
