Black Fine Art Month 2021
Today’s podcast is part of our programming for Black Fine Art Month. Held each October, Black Fine Art Month is a global
celebration of the Black fine art aesthetic, an annual recognition of artists, innovators, collectors, curators and those vested in the black art tradition. And an opportunity to commemorate and elevate these contributions through art programming. The conversation you are about to hear centers on the role black artists have in telling a more complete story of our country’s history. NBC 5 Chicago’s Leeann Trotter is in conversation with artist, sculptor and poet Gerald Griffin, Dr. Robert Hanserd, associate professor of African American History at Columbia College Chicago, and artist and activist Dwight White. It was recorded at the DuSable Museum of African American History, a Smithsonian affiliate.
