HISTORIANS, STUDENTS, ARTISTS AND PUBLIC FORGE LINKS TO THE PAST IN A PANEL DISCUSSION AT THE CALIFORNIA AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSEUM
LOS ANGELES (March 26, 2001) In conjunction with the exhibition, "A Stronger Soul Within A Finer Frame: Portraying African Americans in the Black Renaissance," the California African American Museum is hosting a panel discussion on Sunday, April 8, 2001 from 1-3 p.m. in the Theatre Gallery. Entitled "Forging the Links," the conversation will examine the history of 20th Century African-American imagery and expression, from the Great Migration through the Harlem Renaissance, and the legacy thereafter.
Panelists and historians Dr. Lamont Yeakey of California State University of Los Angeles, Paul Von Blum of UCLA and book collector Alden Kimbrough will explore the historical aspects of African-American history and link them to the artistic and creative process. "Wešre very excited about this discussion," says John Riddle, curator of art for the Museum. We wanted to look at the creators themselves--individuals such as W.E.B. DuBois, Zora Neale Hurston and others--to look at how their intellect contributed to their creation of art." The exhibit and the academic presentation are intended to encourage a spiritual resurgence of cultural awareness among African-American artists, art and history students and the general public. The California African American Museum is located at 600 State Drive in Exposition Park. Admission is free. Parking is $5.
