Between the world wars, African American
artists produced an extraordinary output of painting, sculpture and photography,
answering a call to action from Professor Alain Locke (Howard University). Diverse in style, these artists often told the
story of important events in African American history, including The Great
Migration. In this Zoom presentation,
art historian Jeff Mishur will discuss artists associated with this movement,
including Aaron Douglass, Augusta Savage, Archibald Motley, Jr., James Van Der
Zee, and Jacob Lawrence.
