Black History Lecture Series: The Black Arts Movement 069 CourseCatalog/images/new.gif

The Black Arts Movement is considered the artistic branch of the black power movement and attempted to create the cultural revolution that Malcolm X envisioned... becoming a cultural landmark in American History.  Participants attending this lecture will explore the powerful Black Arts Movement, which was born on the day of Malcolm X's assassination on February 21, 1965 and lasted only a decade until 1975.  We will also discuss how the movement paved the way for diversity in American arts and popular culture and broadened acceptance of minority voices in the visual, literary, and performing arts; and how it also recognized that African Americans had a common history and distinct national culture.  Finally, participants will examine how the notion of what it means to be an African American, and how the movement's words, music, publication and art cast a bright shadow that is still visible in the 21st century.
