For those interested in further study, Harry Henderson, who co-wrote the 1993 publication "History of African American Artists" with Bearden, donated his papers to Penn State University Archives. Most of the research files to put together this book are in this collection.

You have an amazing site of old photos, do you have any of our american indians, or civil war in your findings. I find them to neat to look at that part of Amecana. Thanks!

very interested bit of history here, especially interesting the Prentiss Taylor papers - well worth having a peek at, wouldn't have found it if it wasn't for this blog

Some interesting information and photo's on here i hope there's more to come

wow its really wonderfull old photos and interested bit of history here,who co-wrote the 1993 publication "History of African American Artists" with Bearden, donated his papers to Penn State University Archives. Most of the research files to put together this book are in this collection.I find them to neat to look at that part of real Amecana. Thanks!

Wow that was heartwarming!

This work is a recognition from the whole state to these men and women that from different art fields have built the American History. History is not only the struggle of the politics and the confrontation of different political ideas, its about the peoples´daily lives and artists are the ones reflecting that through different means. Work of art remain as monuments of the past.It´s good that the black community finally had its recognition.

Spectacular collection. What a wonderful resource. Well done

It must be hard work digging some papers documenting of African American art in the twentieth century. But the result is great. And it is a great program from Archives of American Art that mediated for all of the artists’ papers can discussed in this blog post cost the documents have been fully digitized and are available to researchers online. Thank you for sharing.

this is great, yes, well done mate

I really enjoyed reading this. This type of art is one of my favorites.

As a young black kid growing up and trying to be an artist (I really wasn't any good), I really appreciate that these works are recognized for their great quality. My best friend is an artist who has mastered his craft . . . maybe one day I'll find his works being honored as well.

Thanks so much

Terence
