Format: Hardcover
This book is full of colour illustrations of the art being described included are not only sculpture, painting,installations etc but the black person in film, advertising, their political struggles and the perception of the white American society. It served me well as a very useful reference book for an essay I did in University. The title says 'in the 20th Century' but it is kind enough to provide the lead upto the 20th Century for the reader, so you get a very good all round education on the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Contexts, Talents, and Cross-fertilization 9 Dec. 2001
By Steven S Dornbusch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Richard J. Powell's Black Art and Culture in the 20th Century is fascinating reading for ever type of reader: aficionados of Negritude, lovers of prints, paintings, or sculpture, lovers of cinema and pop culture, students of Caribbean cultures, lovers of contemporary or modern art, and students of African-American history. There is truly something here for everyone. This small paperback book is jammed with illustrations rarely seen. Powell's keen eye and sharp intellect make this a rare treat. Powell approaches his subject from many angles, and we are left inspired to seek more. A fantastic buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars 20th Century Black Art Discussed in Dynamic Fashion 29 Jan. 2000
By Picture That Art Gallery - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Examine the African diaspora - a direct result of the transatlantic slave trade and western colonialism while learning about the lives of african american artists who dipicted the temprament of this timeperiod through visual arts. Catlett, Bearden, Mailou Jones, Lawrence, and many others artists are discussed. The "New Negro", Post-Depression period, Souls of Black folks and divided souls of the african american (europe versus african) which called racial idenity into question are also discussed. Very well written and I highly recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Price and condition 17 Jun. 2013
By Francine Kola-Bankole - Published on Amazon.com

The book was not in good shape for the price, and was therefore disappointing. In addition, the title of the book was different than a later edition, but the content was the same.
