LACMA @ Home - Two Centuries Of Black American Art Archival Film & More
The featured piece from this week’s LACMA @ Home series is an archival film from 1976 titled Two Centuries Of Black American Art. The 30 minute documentary, curated by David C. Driskell, showcases several esteemed black artists beginning with Joshua Johnston, the earliest accomplished black artist documented in the U.S. The production and original release of the film was inspired by America’s bicentennial year and growing pressure from the community to increase black representation.
