HUMA 211 Black Arts Movement


The 1960s was a period when many revolutionary Black Americans, artists, dramatists, writers, critics and philosophers engaged in intense debates over the role of the artist in the making of a cultural revolution, and over what constitutes a genuine or true black aesthetic. The Black Arts Movement explicitly targeted a number of long-standing assumptions of literary critics and historians; in particular, the role of the text, the timelessness of art, the responsibility of artists to their communities, and the significance of oral forms in cultural struggles.
