Synopsis

African American Artists by Carol Ellis

From quilts to marble, from comic strips to welded steel, African Americans have created exciting works of art for more than a hundred years. African-American Artists traces the struggles and shows the work of many of these men and women. This book will introduce you to Harriet Powers, who was born a slave and who told legends and stories on her quilts. You'll meet Horace Pippin, who taught himself to paint and kept painting even after he lost the use of his arm. Cartoonist Aaron McGruder and digital artist Angela Perkins are among the African-American artists who continue to enrich the nation's culture today.
