Description: We live in a time when “Critical Race Theory” (CRC) is being hotly debated, challenged, threatened, and even eliminated from curriculums across the Southern region and other areas of the country. In the art of all mediums for more than two decades, members artists of The National Alliance of Artists from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (NAAHBCU) have visually addressed some of these cutting-edge questions and issues that historically have gone unanswered in curriculums across the South. The National Alliance of Artists has more than 80 highly skilled artists, most with roots in the South and connections to HBCUs. These artists and art educators, many with national and international connections, feel strongly about issues that affect everyone such as racial justice, law & order, social welfare, education, and Civil Rights. In this book, member artists present a snippet of their biographies and a select piece for your enrichment.
