Pens and Ploughshares: The Historical Use of Art by African-Descended Women to Create Social Justice in the US Neo-Slavery Era
View, Jenice L.
International Journal of Education & the Arts, v14 spec iss 2.5 Sep 2013
In the period after the 1896 U.S. Supreme Court decision (Plessy v. Ferguson), "white" supremacy was codified and reinforced through law, custom, and mob violence. Despite this, African-descended women artists in the Western Hemisphere committed the revolutionary act of declaring, "I am; I am here; I am here remaking/reimagining the world you are destroying." This chapter offers some of the lesser-known counter-narratives of these artists of the period between the late 1890s and the 1960s.
