Course Description:

From quilts stitched by enslaved women to sculptures of lynching victims to pop art about beauty and race, Black women from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries have turned to the arts and visual culture to articulate their resistance and to grapple with complexities and contradictions of “home” in the New World. This seminar introduces a range of Black women artists, who use art to respond to the currents of resistance at key moments in history – from “Ain’t I a Woman?” to Black Lives Matter.
