ARTS 3333 - Art of the African Diaspora


This course explores the art of black America beginning with a brief look at African art and follows its transport to the New World of the Americas. Particular focus will be given to the Kingdom of Benin, now part of Nigeria, the Asante Empire located in the modern nation of Ghana, the Yoruba of Nigeria, and the Mende of Liberia and Sierra Leone. In addition, students will become familiar with American artists of African descent with consideration given to artists whose work reflects cultural and social history, and an engagement with the political issues of the 19th and 20th centuries. 3 credits
