Black Art Project

“The Black Art Project, with a focus on the visual arts, is an evolving multi-faceted series of collective projects that together will present solid, verifiable documentation of the contributions of Black art and artists in the overall body of American art.”

Maintained by George-McKinley Martin, an art librarian, historian and collector whose mission is to raise the “visibility of black art history and the work of black artists through documentation, education, and advocacy.” Mr. Martin spent many years as the Chief of the Arts and Literature Division of the District of Columbia Public Library (DCPL), and recently retired as the Coordinator of Special Collections at DCPL.
