The Case for Black With a Capital B

Now Playing: African American Art and Artists

African American Art and Artists

The Boston art scene is vibrant and ripe with artists of color.  Basic Black speaks with three artists about their craft and the economics of art from collectors who purchase art to how people can enjoy and learn more about it, as well as the life of an working artist.  An art historian rounds out the panel to provide history and context about African American art.  Guests will also give some tips on how a novice can begin art collecting.  Guests tonight:

Napoleon Jones-Henderson, Bob Freeman, Ekua Holmes and Nikki Greene, Ph.D.
