Book Description:
Speaking powerfully and directly to a growing audience, African American vernacular art is making its mark in the art world. In this outstanding collection of contemporary art, works by 27 self taught artists bear eloquent testimony to the social, cultural, and spiritual experiences of Southern African Americans. Thornton Dial Sr., Ronald Lockett, Bessie Harvey, Mose Tolliver, and Purvis Young head a roster of leading artists in this genre. Five scholars explore the significance of these emotionally charged, culturally complex artworks and their context in the larger art world; brief biographies and the artists' own statements are included. Testimony accompanies a traveling exhibition organized by the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and Exhibitions International. 171 illustrations, 101 in full color, 192 pages, 91/4 x 101/4'
