The International Review of African American Art, Vol. 7 No. 1 (1986)


Published in 1986, this 64–page volume of the Hampton University Museum’s The International Review of African American Art is dedicated to the art of Barbados. Covered in this journal are: the growth of an artistic tradition in Barbados by way of festivals, the Barbados Museum, the “De People’s Art Movement” (DEPAM), and the Barbados Community College. In addition, this issue spotlights the Ruck–a–Tuck International and “1627 and All That Sort of Thing”, two Barbadian music and dance extravaganzas. A poem by Elton Elombe Mottley, director of the National Cultural Foundation of Barbados, and interviews with artists David Gall, Joyce Daniel, Omowale Stewart, Akyem and Woodpecker are also featured in this issue. Finally, this issue commemorates Karl Broodhagen’s art and career, including his statue Emancipation, which was unveiled in 1985 as a dedication to thousands of slaves, who laid the foundation for Barbadian society. Included in this issue are many color and black & white photographs of artists’ works, and very insightful commentaries by highly respected art reviewers.
