This chapter discusses the legacies left behind by the Black Arts Movement (BAM) in the postrace era. The writers Carolyn Rodgers, Angela Jackson, and Sterling Plumpp all pointed out that the movement had a lasting impact on their lives, fostering their growth as writers, allowing them to have prolific careers even beyond the time of BAM. Artists such as Rodgers, Jackson, and Plumpp continued to reprise the ideals embodied by BAM in their recent works, further advancing the evolution of the Black Arts aesthetic.
