Collaboration at Its Best in the Black Arts Era
This chapter explores how the agenda of the Black Arts movement (BAM) was shaped by and paradoxically instituted by a collaboration of competing and contradicting factors. Black American artists, activists, and intellectuals, identified themselves as “Black Artists,” many of them favored a socially progressive agenda for obtaining cultural empowerment for black communities. Black resistance to white American domination has always been pacifist, militarist, or a combination of the two, a contradiction that proved to be essential in the formation of BAM ideals of diversity.
