With the Emancipation of American slaves after the American Civll War, black America women continued to face specific challenges, as well as opportunities, as a result of their gender. The focus this week is black American women artists. What is their role in identifying and promoting the special role of black American women in US culture and history? Pick a living black American woman artist. Respond to this question in 10 complete sentences (minimum) and upload an image of a work of art that supports your point of view. Discuss the work of art in your response, using it as an example. Whenever relevant, describe how this reflects and/or differs from your own experience. Use detailed visual analysis of the work and/or published comments by the artist to support your interpretation. After you have uploaded your response, respond to the two previous threads by two different coursemates. Refer to specific points in coursemates’ responses, and be as specific as possible. This is an academic exercise, so do not generalize. Do you agree with your coursemates on this subject? Why? Why not? Always provide your coursemate with a proposal for an alternate point of view–a ‘have you considered’ question.
