New thoughts on the Black arts movement by Lisa Gail Collins ( )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the 1960s and 1970s, a cadre of poets, playwrights, visual artists, musicians, and other visionaries came together to create a renaissance in African American literature and art. This charged chapter in the history of African American culture-which came to be known as the Black Arts Movement-has remained largely neglected by subsequent generations of critics. New Thoughts on the Black Arts Movement includes essays that reexamine well-known figures such as Amiri Baraka, Larry Neal, Gwendolyn Brooks, Sonia Sanchez, Betye Saar, Jeff Donaldson, and Haki Madhubuti.

The author overviews the history and criticism of African American visual art and material culture from the mid-19th to the early 21st century. Collins examines the history of African American arts from its roots in slavery and abolition through the post-Civil War era, growth and theoretical refocus on black themes during the Harlem Renaissance and the New Negro Movement of the Jazz Age, the impact of the Great Depression and the New Deal on the arts, the influence of social realism and modern Mexican muralists in the 1930s, the growth of scholarship on arts and artists of African descent in the 1940s, and the development of the civil rights movement, the Black Arts Movement, and women's art and women's liberation through the 1980s and 1990s. Prominent artists and organizations such as Henry Ossawa Tanner (1859-1937), Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000), Horace Pippin (1888-1946), and the Harmon Foundation are profiled. Following the historical overview, the author explores the art history and criticism of African American art to contemporary art and critical theory.
