This chapter discusses the contributions of female artists, activists, and intellectuals from the Black Arts Movement (BAM) to the expansion of black aesthetic. The BAM fulfilled its ideological aims through numerous artistic, activist, and intellectual, collaborations from its key participants and its very own critics. This chapter points out that BAM’s female artists such as Johari Amini, Carolyn Rodgers, and Angela Jackson, not only promoted the black American female perspective but also showed a degree of commitment to an inclusive concept of Black Art.

Keywords:   female artists, Black Arts Movement, black aesthetic, collaborations, Johari Amini, Carolyn Rodgers, Angela Jackson
