Aaron Douglas : African American modernist by Aaron Douglas ( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In paintings, murals, and book illustrations, Aaron Douglas (1899-1979) produced the most powerful visual legacy of the Harlem Renaissance, prompting the philosopher and writer Alain Locke to dub him the "father of Black American art." Douglas's role, as well as that of the Harlem Renaissance in general, in the evolution of American modernism deserves close scholarly attention - attention it finally receives in this illustrated book on his life and work. Its authors argue that Douglas's work opened doors for African American artists in Harlem and beyond, and that it invited a dialogue with modernism that put African American life, labor, and freedom, along with African traditions and motifs, at its center. New information emerges from these pages, reflecting the rich interchange between the visual arts, music, dance, literature, and politics that shaped Douglas's work and also defined the Harlem Renaissance."--BOOK JACKET

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book, photographs and powerful prayers drawn from the collections of the Schomburg Center for Research n Black Culture span the broad spectrum of black religious traditions during the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries. From the plaintive Yoruba prayer to "Look after us/Look after our children" and the humble opening prayer of the Qur'an to "Guide us on the right path" to W.E.B. DuBois's prideful prayer to "Let [Thy children] grow in the capacity for worthy work...and may they in the end prove worthy of their great heritage," this volume reflects the struggle, despair, determination, and triumph of the black experience through the ages. Drawing from faiths as diverse as Islam, Christianity, Judaism, and Vodou, the book also includes prayers from some of history's most powerful voices, among them Maya Angelou, James Baldwin, and Martin Luther King, Jr."--BOOK JACKET
