The Black Arts Movement was a cultural movement in the 1960s and 1970s led by Black artists, activists, and intellectuals that shaped the ideologies of Black identity, political beliefs, and African American culture. Past and present meet to reflect, examine, and point to the full experience and culture of the Black Arts Movement in a celebratory concert hosted by Carrie Mae Weems and Carl Hancock Rux with musical direction by Vernon Reid.
