The black Teacher

Even if it rains

in white snow,

I will shelter my head

under a black umbrella.



For the white storm

that splattered the bones of Nehanda and Kaguvi,

I will dangle a black pendent.



For the white orriented hatred

that narrowed the life of Martin Luther Jnr,

I will smear this black powder on my skin

to dwell in rememberance.



Even if it pours in red blood,

I will carry with me a black umbrella.

For the black dye that… Continue

Polymer in an Artists Hands

Gradually more and more artists and makers are learning about this medium I like to describe as akin to working with "solid paint."  Over the past decades fine artists and craftspeople have chosen polymer clay as their medium of choice.  Works featuring this clay can be found in sophisticated art galleries and museums, such as the Smithsonian Institution, around the world.

In the early 1990’s an acquaintance introduced me to polymer clay. Initially, in the early days I would work…

Embracing the Artist In You

So, we say we are Artist! What does that mean? Most people describe us as free styled, strange, off-beat and maybe out of touch with the real world. I say, “Thank you for the positive feed- back”. Although, I am sure that the comments are not meant as positive…

We, as Artist tend to see the world from a different prospective. The world sees a tree with green foliage. We view the same tree as a painting or sculpture. The tree is not green it is shades of green, yellow, red and maybe…

Alfred Amadu Conteh Commentary On The Current State Of The National Black Arts Festival

"Yesterday, I posted a few comments about the current state of the National Black Arts Festival.. Due to shared remarks between two opposing parties that got a bit personal and off topic, I deleted the thread. The following comments I've written today are very similar to those that were subsequently erased. 



Thank you, and I would love to here your feedback on this

What Do This Generation Know About African American History?

In this non-Post-Black era, there is a move to erase or eliminate the use of the terms Black, African-American, etc. in the labeling of artists/artist's works in fine art and historical institutions. The problem is the way conversations are constructed about the African-American experience; meaning, 1. Self-hate, 2. Skin-color, 3. Fix-in, 4. Contributor, 5. Historian, and my favor, 6. Black-ideology? I took some of my university graduate art students to a museum to view several works by…
