APPIAH, KWAME ANTHONY and HENRY LOUIS GATES, Jr.
Africana: The Encyclopedia of the African and African American Experience.
Oxford University Press, 1999; 2005.
5 Vols. 4500 pp., 1000 photographs, maps, illus. Expanded to 8 vols. No new information or in-depth discussion of the visual arts. Names of visual artists included in the accounts of each period of black history are often lumped into a one sentence list; very few have additional biographical entries. [As of 2011, far more substantial information on most of the artists is available from Wikipedia than is included in this Encyclopedia.] Includes mention of: James Presley Ball, Jean-Michel Basquiat, David A. Bailey, Edward M. Bannister, Richmond Barthé, Cornelius Battey, Romare Bearden, Dawoud Bey, Everald Brown, Elizabeth Catlett, Dana Chandler, Roland Charles, Barbara Chase-Riboud, Albert V. Chong, Robert H. Colescott, Allan R. Crite, Beauford Delaney, Joseph Delaney, Murry Depillars, Jeff Donaldson, Aaron Douglas, Robert S.

The entry on African Women Artists includes an odd and out-of-date collection of names: Elizabeth Olowu, Agnes Nyanhongo, Alice Sani, Iriji Efflatoun, Grace Chigumira, Thersa Musoke, Palma Sintoa, Elsa Jacob, and Terhas Iyassu. Hopefully future editions will follow the path of the substantially expanded edition of 2005 and will alter the overall impression that black visual artists are not worth the time and attention of the editors. [Note: Now out-of-print and available only through exorbitant subscription to the Oxford African American Studies Center (OAASC) a single database incorporating multiple Oxford encyclopedias, ongoing addiitions will apparently be unavailable to individuals or to most small libraries in the U.S. or worldwide.] 4to (29 cm.; 10.9 x 8.6 in.), cloth.

BONE, ROBERT and RICHARD COURAGE.
The Muse In Bronzeville: African American Creative Expression In Chicago, 1932-1950.
New Brunswick: Rutgers University Press, 2011.
336 pp., 12 illus., appendix A lists 35 artists (26 of whom were employed by the Federal Art Project), notes, bibliog., index. The book argues that a Chicago cultural Renaissance (equivalent to the Harlem Renaissance of the 20s and early 30s) occurred from 1935-50 when it picked up the torch from Harlem. This proposition, first advanced by Richard Bone, is laid out here in greater detail in a book he had been working on for over a decade and which was finished by his collaborator/colleague Richard Courage. Unfortunately, visual art was not a primary concern for Bone or for Courage, so as one might expect the visual art information here is largely a reworking of previously published material on the few artists who are discussed. No new information, for example, on Horace Cayton's support of visual artists at the Park Community Center. Includes: Margaret Burroughs, Eldzier Cortor, Archibald Motley, Jr., Gordon Parks, Marion Perkins, Charles Sebree, Charles White; with bare passing mention of Elizabeth Catlett, William Dawson, William McKnight Farrow, Bernard Goss, and a few others. Most of the four dozen artists working in Chicago, or even the full 35 listed in Appendix A are not mentioned or discussed; they include: Hanry A. Avery, John Carlis, William S. Carter, Edward T. Collier, Charles Davis, Katherine Dorsey, Walter Ellison, Ramon Gabriel, Rex Goreleigh (as Gorleigh), Charles Haig, Fred Hollingsworth, Frederick D. Jones, Joseph Kersey, Clarence Lawson, Lonnie Moore, Frank Neal, George Neal, Kenneth Prince, David Ross, William Stewart, Jennelsie Walden, Earl Walker, Oscaretta Winn, Vernon Winslow, Leon Wright. 4to (10.2 x 7.2 in.), cloth, d.j.

NEW YORK (NY). Downtown Gallery.
American Negro Art, 19th and 20th Centuries.
December 9, 1941-January 3, 1942.
Exhib. cat. The first show of African American art held at a mainstream commercial gallery, the exhibition, curated by gallery owner Edith Halpert, was sponsored by a committee of prominent white patrons including Mayor Fiorello La Guardia, Archibald MacLeish, A. Philip Randolph, and Eleanor Roosevelt. Among its aims were to raise money for the Negro Art Fund, to promote museum acquisitions of work by Black artists, and to encourage galleries to represent the living participants. In addition to providing its facilities, the Downtown Gallery donated all sales commissions to the Negro Art Fund and added Jacob Lawrence to its roster of artists at this time. Artists included: 19th century: Edward Bannister, Robert Duncanson, Edwin Harleston, William H. Simpson, Henry O. Tanner; 20th century: Charles Alston, Henry Avery, Romare Bearden, Samuel J. Brown, William S. Carter, Elizabeth Catlett, Felton Coleman, Eldzier Cortor, Cleo Crawford, Ernest Crichlow, Allan Crite, Charles Davis, Beauford Delaney, Joseph Delaney, Palmer Hayden, Malvin Gray Johnson, William H. Johnson, Ron Joseph, Paul Keene, Joseph Kersey, Jacob Lawrence, Norman Lewis, Elba Lightfoot, Archibald Motley, Frederick Perry, Horace Pippin, Charles Sebree, George N. Victory, Charles White, Ellis Wilson, Hale Woodruff. Printmakers: Robert Blackburn, John Borican, Claude Clarke, Wilmer Jennings, Bryant Pringle, Raymond Steth, Dox Thrash, James L. Wells. Sculptors: William Artis, Richmond Barthé, Selma Burke, William Edmondson, Sargent Johnson, Martha Manning, Augusta Savage, John Henry Smith. [See copy of catalogue in National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian, vertical files.] [Listed in Magazine of Art 34 (Nov. 1941):497 with incorrect dates. Review in Art Digest, December 15, 1941, praises the show, but in exceedingly demeaning racist language: "The American Negro has at last spoken in art -- firmly and distinctively, his voice having as definite an intonation with colors as his soul has in singing and dancing. His choice of dazzling colors is just as typical as his exaggerated sense of humor, his strut and guffaw; his concern with the burdened just as characteristic as his pleading songs to his Maker."

NEW YORK (NY). Harlem Federal Theater Project.
Macbeth.
1936.
The production opened at the Lafayette Theater, Harlem, April 14, 1936. Directed by 20 yr. old Orson Welles, starring Jack Carter (later replaced by Maurice Ellis), Edna Thomas and Canada Lee. and set in 19th century Haiti. Welles hired a team of African drummers, some of whom were knowledgeable about voodoo practices, to accompany the witch's speeches with drumbeats. They were led by renowned Sierra Leonean drummer Asadata Dafora, from which it became known as the "Voodoo Macbeth." The set designs (said to have been in hot tropical colors) were created and painted by Charles Sebree, Perry Watkins and Harold Thurman, on a scenery and costume budget of $2000. [Note: A brief 4 min. excerpt of the final scene available on YouTube as of November 24, 2011: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QgGSBSM3ln4].
