Book description

This Companion authoritatively points to the main areas of enquiry within the subject of

African American art history. The first section examines how African American art has been constructed

over the course of a century of published scholarship. The second section studies how

African American art is and has been taught and researched in academia. The third part focuses

on how African American art has been reflected in art galleries and museums. The final section

opens up understandings of what we mean when we speak of African American art. This book

will be of interest to graduate students, researchers, and professors and may be used in American

art, African American art, visual culture, and culture classes.
