This book is an amazing, interesting, detailed look at black people, mainly American, but also some European, from the 1700s to the 1900s in art, literature, painting, sculpture and theatre. The author also gives an interesting analysis of the work of these people, participating in areas not considered as suitable for black people and how black people are represented and perceived too in the arts. The author writes passionately, but also authoritatively.
