Black Art: an International Quarterly, Vol. 1 No. 2 (1976)


Published in 1976, this 68–page volume of the Hampton University Museum’s Black Art: an International Quarterly (predecessor to The International Review of African American Art) is dedicated to the careers and art of Howard Smith, Art Smith and Yinka Adeyemi. In addition, the Golden State Mutual Collection of Afro–American Art, and the importance of art collecting and art education in the African American community are discussed in this journal. Finally, this issue reviews The Black Photographers Annual Volume 3, edited by Joe Crawford and Joe Walker (foreword by Gordon Parks and introduction by James Baldwin; New York: Black Photographers Annual, Inc., 1976) and commemorates a generous gift given to The Founders Society of the Detroit Institute of Arts. Included in this issue are many color and black & white photographs of artists’ works, and very insightful commentaries by highly respected art reviewers.
