Between the world wars, African American artists produced an extraordinary output of painting, sculpture and photography answering a call to action from professor Alain Locke (Howard University). Diverse in style, these artists often told the story of important events in African American history, including The Great Migration.

In this Zoom presentation, art historian Jeff Mishur of Art Excursions discusses artists associated with this movement, including Horace Pippin, Aaron Douglass, Augusta Savage, Archibald Motley, Jr., James Van Der Zee, and Jacob Lawrence.
