Black artists work in a variety of media,with subjects ranging from portraiture to Politics, Morality, and social commentary. However the Black artists currently receiving the most attention are those who present racially charged, sexually explicit, and some say exploitative…

Ruby Dee and Maya Angelou: Angels of Dignity

Like most us I was saddened to hear of the deaths of two remarkable, legendary, transcendent American women. The loss of one is extremely painful; the loss of two in such quick succession is almost unthinkable. The profound poetry of Dr. Maya Angelou inspired generations of young people to question the norms of an unjust society and challenge us to force change for the good of all, which is exactly what she worked for until the day she was called home. Ruby Dee was a tireless advocate for…

Tanner's Banjo Lesson

The Banjo Lesson is one of the most important images ever created by an African American artist. This was one of the first depictions of Black Americans in which stereotypical minstrel show type characterizations did not play a part. The tender one on one interaction between teacher and student shows the kind of intelligence and sensitivity indicative of real human beings,…

Story image

Former NFL player and Emory faculty member Pellom McDaniels III wrote the definitive biography of the first African American jockey to win the Kentucky Derby three times.
