"Bedtime" 1940 by Charles L. Salle (1911-2006) . Salle was the first African Anerican graduate of the Cleveland School of Art and this painting was featured on James A. Porter's seminal volume "Modern Negro Art" in 1943 . @clevelandmuseumofart @studiomuseum #blackarthistory

Rest in peace to my dear friend and fellow artist, Tamara Natalie Madden. You were (and will always be) a tremendous inspiration both on and away from the canvas...much love and respect forever! 🙏 #tamaranataliemadden #greatartist #blackarthistory #arthistory

Black Art History Month!!! Jacob Lawrence Neighborhoods! #blackhistorymonth #blackarthistory #jacoblawrence #carverscholars @carver_elementary @slps_info

In 1945, artist Jacob Lawrence was one of four artists included in the exhibition “Four Modern American Painters” at the ICA (then the Institute of Modern Art). He was 27 at the time, and serving in the Coast Guard on the first racially integrated warship in the United States Armed Forces since the American Civil War.
Lawrence’s work first appeared at the ICA two years earlier in 1943, when the museum mounted the first survey in New England of African American artists, focusing on the Harlem Renaissance and its legacy at a time when Boston was still racially and ethnically divided. That exhibition came just a year after Lawrence’s 60-panel “Migration” series first toured 15 U.S. cities, bringing him national recognition.
Lawrence went on to become a treasured educator and one of the country’s most influential and celebrated modern painters.

I was born into art. My grandfather John N Robinson shared his gift with me and the rest of his grandchildren through art lessons, in the summer when we were out of school, on the porch. This is a piece he created of my grandmother, his beloved Gladys as she enjoyed opening Christmas gifts in the 80s. #artlegacy #blackarthistory #artinmyblood

Jacob Lawrence was one of the most important artists of the 20th century, widely renowned for his modernist depictions of everyday life as well as epic narratives of African American history and historical figures. 🎨

Born in 1917 in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Lawrence moved with his family to Harlem in 1930, where he came into contact with some of the greatest artistic and intellectual minds of his generation. In the previous decade, Harlem had experienced the remarkably creative period known as the Harlem Renaissance, and the neighborhood was still the focal point of African-American culture. Before he was twenty years old, Lawrence had developed a powerful, concise style that expressed all of the vibrancy and pathos of the neighborhood and its occupants. #blackarthistory

I am obsessed with this two piece "Urban Wall Suit" by Jae Jarrell made in 1969. During the curator talk @catherinejanetmorris told us that Jarrell used to wear the suit often while carrying one of her babies 👶🏽 around so it had shown signs of wear and tear on the left hip! As a mom, I thought that was incredible! ✏️Facts- Jae Jarrell was one of the co-founders of the Black Arts Movement collective AfriCobra which was a collective of black visual artists started in Chicago in 1968. Go see her work 👀@caaminla

Truckin' (1969) by William T. Williams @nmaahc is a bright ☀️spot for this still-feels-like-summer #MuseumMonday 🙌🏾

I have seen Soul of a Nation already, and would highly recommend it, but don’t rush through it take your time ( about an hour or 2) I just thought it was so cool how these little school kids were being taken to the exhibition. Powerful. Self empowerment right there - start them young 💥 Remember that this exhibition closes on 22 Oct - catch it while you can! (2nd Floor Tate Modern - tickets on ground floor or via website).

@michaelrosenfeldgallery You clearly have unbelievable taste ✊🏾 Who remembers this painting by Bob Thompson at Frieze Masters. Bob was an African-American figurative painter known for his bold and colorful canvases, whose compositions were appropriated from the Old Masters. 🔥🎨👌🏾#paintingwithatwist #arthistory #blackarthistory #cool #painting #africanamerican #blackartist #brothers #blacklivesmatter #curators #collectors #art #magical #mystery #history #supreme

Thank you @zoe.whitley for a gracious and thoughtful tour ❤️❤️❤️ and @blackblossomss for the invitation 🖤🖤🖤 #blackart #blackhistory #arthistory #blackarthistory #livinghistory #soulofanation

Definitely love this book. It tells the story of Jerry Butler and the history of the African American artists that came before him.
I love this book because Nene loves art but had no clue (not surprising) their influence. .
So if y'all have any budding artists, this is a great start to their history. .

Too $hort
Todd Shaw AKA "Too $hort" was born on April 28th 1966 in South Centra Los Angeles, California. After him and his family moved to Oakland when he was 14, he decided to start rapping after hearing Sugar Hill Gang and Melle Mel. He first started selling his mixtapes out of the trunk of his car in the early 80s and in '83 he signed to 75 Girls and released his fiirst "official" album Don't Stop Rappin and became the first rap star out of the West Coast. 3 albums and 2 years later, him and his friend Freddy B form their own label, Dangerous Music. Born To Mack dropped in 1986 and it sold 50,000 copies and when Jive Records heard of this, they signed him and released the album a 2nd time which helped propel him to the next level.

"Riding With Death" is my favorite Basquiat painting, and a fitting one: today, 29 years ago, Basquiat went on to become the myth and legend that he knew that he'd become. It's also thought to be the last painting that JMB completed (in April) before he died. •

The coverage of today will be dominated --as it should be -- by the New-Klan rally happening in #Charlottesville. But I think today, especially because, we should also remember this day in art history. It's been 29 years, but as @fabnewyork said so elegantly, "the embers are still hot." #Basquiat #arthistory #RidingWithDeath #BlackLivesMatter #BlackArtHistory ##BlackHistoryisHistory #RadiantChild #August12 #1988

I'm more of a dog person, but it's #InternationalCatDay This is Lois Mailou Jones painting in her Paris studio (circa) 1937 as her cat hangs out on her shoulder. Ms. Jones (1905-1998) was born in Boston and graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts there in 1927. After studying art at Harvard and Columbia, she established the art department at Palmer Memorial Institute, the black preparatory school founded by Charlotte Hawkins Brown in Sedalia, North Carolina. Ms. Jones then moved on to Howard University in 1930 and remained there for more than fifty years. #vintageblackglamour #LoisMailouJones #internationalcatday

#TalkTema
Tema is a city constructed on the site of a small fishing village.The city derived its name from “Torman” a Ga name which means “The Land of Gourd” due to the numerous gourd plants and fruits found on the land then. This town serves as the home of the indigenous Ga speaking people of Tema.
The city was commissioned by Ghana's first president, Kwame Nkrumah, and grew rapidly after the construction of a large harbour in 1961. The Tema metropolis was designed, planned and developed by the award-winning urban planner and Ghana's first architect, Theodore S. Clerk.
The city serves as a home for people with different cultures and racial backgrounds across the world. It also serves as a business place for the young and old from all walks of life who engage in numerous entrepreneurial activities.
And Tema is the home of the Black Art Street festival.

In 2015 the Black Art Street Festival (formerly Tema Art & Fashion Festival) brought Dr. Kwame Nkrumah back to Tema through a mural by Versatile Artist MOH AWUDU.
TEMA was built by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah in the 1960's to drive Ghana's industrial revolution.

Euzhan Palcy
Euzhan Palcy was born on January 13th 1958 in Gros-Morne, Martinique. With the help of her father, she became heavily interested and influenced by the arts, reading books like "Cry the Beloved Country" by Alan Paton and "LA Rue Cases Nègres" by Josef Zobel which will be the inspiration for her first film in which she directed at 17 in 1974. She then moved to Paris to continue her studies in 1977 and in 1983 she directed her first feature film "Sugar Cane Alley". The film became huge and with this success, she became the first Black person to win the César Award and in 1989 she became the first Black female director to have a film ("A Dry White Season") be produced by a major studio.

I first came to know the great artist Frank Bowling through his writing when I was an art history student @smithcollege. I read his 1969 "Discussion of Black Art" and many of his other writings in the bound volumes of Arts magazine in the Hillyer Art Library in the late 1980s almost 20 years after he wrote these words. Read them again yesterday as I have many times over the intervening years , in the excellent exhibition of Bowling's work "Mappa Mundi" curated by Okwui Enwezor at @haus_der_kunst Munich. Still resonant. The first paragraph .." The art scene is full of things that everyone knows about; grapevine truths that people carry around [rather in the manner of beasts of burden] like guilty secrets. "Guilty" because, although everyone is free to air these general truths, they are only tempted to do so under duress or in instances of extreme passion – offensively or defensively. One of these guilty secrets is the neglect of the black artist. By a rare piece of luck [perhaps it's an historical imperative] we have had a spate of black shows: individual, collective, old, new. But it is neither possible nor desirable to separate this sudden appearance of black shows from the extant political mood. And since art and politics are, in this case, inseparable, there is no better time than now to create standards."

This book is so wonderful. It has the complete migration series with accompanying commentary for each panel. It explains the cause and effects of the northern migration of southern blacks during Jim Crow. I wish that people took the time to truly understand art history. Art history is world history.
