While the self-taught artists featured in this groundbreaking catalogue were born in the Jim Crow period of institutionalised racism, their works embody the promise and attainment of freedom in the modern Civil Rights era and address some of the most profound and persistent issues in American society, including race, class, gender, and spirituality.

Originally created as expressions of individual identity and communal solidarity, these eloquent objects are powerful testaments to the continuity and survival of African American culture. This gorgeous book features lush illustrations of works by artists such as Thornton Dial, Bessie Harvey, Purvis Young, and the Gee's Bend quilters - including Gearldine Westbrook, Jessie T. Pettway, and more - and presents a series of insightful essays.
