  • Reading the Art of DC-MD
    • Abstract: The notes that follow might serve, I hope, as a kind of preface to the four issues of Callaloo• Art that are devoted to the visual art produced by native-born Washingtonians, Marylanders, and other persons living in southern Maryland, including Baltimore, and in the District of Columbia. Originally, I had planned to cover this subject in two different installments of Callaloo • Art, an annual publication. However, not long after the publication of the 2015 issue devoted to the National Museum of African American History and Culture and to contemporary art of the DC-MD region, I discovered that only one more single issue could not accommodate my plans. That is, my hope to represent significant persons, events, and ... Read More

           American Visual Arts in Washington, DC: Part 1
    • Abstract: I am what time, circumstance, history, have made of me certainly, but I am, also, much more than that. So are we all.The spirit of the New Negro Movement, inspired by the post-Reconstruction reign of terror and the draconian impact of the Plessy v. Ferguson decision of 1896, set in motion a process of resistance, self-affirmation, and justice-seeking self-righteousness that planted the seeds of the modern Civil Rights Movement in the hearts and minds of Black America. Out of it came a new mass movement of Black people who were committed to proving their status and identities as human beings and building among and within themselves the capacity to be much more than America believed possible.Time, circumstance, and ...

These needs determine what I do."When Elizabeth Catlett died at her home in Cuernavaca, Mexico, on April 2, 2012, a number of US American newspapers were quick to acknowledge her passing—for example, Los Angeles Times, Washington ...

    • Abstract: Portrait of James V. Herring by James A. Porter (1923)(1887–1969)Courtesy of the Howard University Gallery of ArtJames Vernon Herring (1887–1969), born in Clio, South Carolina, to an African American mother and a white Jewish father, was an educator and visual artist. To ensure him a good education and protection from white racial violence, his family sent the youthful Herring to live with family members in Washington, DC. There he received his early education at Howard University Academy, which prepared him to enter and successfully graduate from Syracuse University and later to do graduate work at Columbia and Harvard universities. A year after he was appointed to Howard University's architecture faculty, he ... Read More

But who was Joshua Johnson' That is not a simple question, but it is one that we cannot, at this time, give a fulsome answer—what for the lack of authentic documents verifying and recounting more of his life and work in Maryland, particularly in Baltimore City.

Even though I sometimes portray scenes of poor and struggling people, it is a great joy to paint.Nine years before she passed in 1998, Loïs Mailou Jones graciously allowed me to visit her at her home in Washington, DC, to record an interview with her for Callaloo. Her interview is one of the most revelatory I had ever conducted, and she ended it with these words:So now, Charles, in the sixtieth year of my career, I can look back on my work and be inspired by France, Haiti, Africa, the Black experience, and Martha's Vineyard (where it all began) and admit: there is no ...

    • Abstract: Self-Portrait (c.1935)(1905–1970)Courtesy of Swann Auction GalleriesJames A. Porter was an art historian, educator, curator, and visual artist. He was, in other words, practitioner of what he researched and wrote about, of what he taught, and of what he gathered and mounted in galleries and on museum walls. He is first remembered by academics as an art historian who taught some of the best minds and visual artists who studied at Howard University during the span of his teaching career. "A pioneer in establishing the field of African American art history," writes Jeffreen M. Hayes, who rightly declares thatJames A. Porter was instrumental as the first scholar to provide a systematic, critical analysis of African ... Read More

It is of all ages, of every land, and if by this we mean the creative spirit in man which produces a picture or a statue is common to the whole civilized world, independent of age, race and nationality, the statement may stand unchallenged.Through color, I have sought to concentrate on beauty and happiness, rather than on man's inhumanity to man.To tell the story of Alma Woodsey Thomas, whom we now think of as ...

  • James L. Wells
    • Abstract: (1902–1993)Courtesy of the Moorland-Spingarn Research Center, Manuscript Division, Howard University, Washington, DCJames Lesesne Wells was an educator, painter, printmaker, and designer, who taught legions of students at Howard University and elsewhere, many of whom are now major artists, curators, arts administrators and—as was their master-teacher—educators themselves. There is no doubt that many of those thousands of men and women James Wells taught would agree with Richard J. Powell, one of Wells's mentees, when he proclaimed in James Lesesne Wells: Sixty Years in Art, that "Mr. Wells has printed, painted, sculpted, molded, taught, witnessed, stood up, and envisioned much, and it is a blessing that we can ...

It currently is home to a network of over seventy-five museums and galleries including more than twenty devoted primarily to collecting, preserving, and exhibiting art. Foremost among these are the diverse museums and galleries established and operated by the Smithsonian Institution. By themselves, they attract over twenty-five ... Read More

Thanks to Floyd Coleman for taking time out from his many projects to answer the questions I sent to him for this interview. Thanks also to Jeremy M. Clark, a new member of the Callaloo staff, for the sterling editorial work he continues to perform for the journal.I want to begin our conversation by interrogating the very purpose of its central concern: the history and significance of the black visual art scene in Washington, DC, from the beginnings of the twentieth century to the late-1950s. As far as I know (and I hope you will correct me if I am misreading the current intellectual or ... Read More

    • Abstract: In December of 2008, Janet Gail Abbott submitted a 219-page text entitled The Barnett Aden Gallery: A Home for Diversity in a Segregated City as her final requirement for the PhD degree at Pennsylvania State University. Whether her professors and her fellow graduate students fully understood or acknowledged the importance of what Janet Abbott had done, we do not know; however, we, her readers, know that what Abbott offers in The Barnett Aden Gallery is invaluable information on and judicious commentary on a long-ignored period in American art history. While recreating major moments in the founding and services of the first privately-owned gallery by African Americans, Abbott also discusses for us the importance of ... Read More

  • James A. Porter & Alain Locke on Race, Culture, and the Making of Art:
           A Roundtable
    • Abstract: As I was preparing this special issue of Callaloo • Art, I by chance discovered James A. Porter's essay "The Negro Artist and Racial Bias" in Art Front (1937), a limited-run magazine published by the Artist Union of New York from 1925–1937. As I read Porter's article, I was all the more intrigued by his ideas and how he fluently expressed them, and then suddenly I came upon the following statement, which jarred me:Dr. Alain Leroy Locke's recent pamphlet, Negro Art: Past and Present, is intended to bolster his already wide reputation as a champion of Africanism in Negro art. This little pamphlet, just off the press, is one of the greatest dangers to the Negro artist to arise in recent years. It contains a narrow ... Read More

  • In Search of Black Art(ists): On James A. Porter's Instructive
           Misunderstanding of Alain L. Locke
    • Abstract: No Negro who has given earnest thought to the situation of his people in America has failed, at some time in life, to find himself at these crossroads; has failed to ask himself at some time: What, after all, am I' Am I an American or am I a Negro' Can I be both' Or is it my duty to cease to be a Negro as soon as possible and be an American' If I strive as a Negro, am I not perpetuating the very cleft that threatens and separates Black and White America' Is not my only possible practical aim the subduction of all that is Negro in me to the American'These questions, which have engaged so many, have troubled all of my work. How to be both free and situated; how to convert a racist house into a race-specific yet ... Read More

  • James A. Porter & Alain Locke on Race, Culture, and the Making of Art:
           A Response Essay
    • Abstract: Tricky as Anansi with his countless names and iterations, the question here is difficult to pin down or distill. Where does it even begin' In Negro Art: Past and Present, Locke recommends that black artists and writers shed their shame and self-loathing. Amen to that, I say. But then he predicts that once this is done, black writers and artists will produce work that bears a family resemblance to African art. Despite his insistence that we would be "foolish… to want to restrict the Negro artist to racial subject matter or to being merely an exponent of Negro art," he wants to prove the cultural patrimony of Africa was equal to that of Europe. This is where the trouble starts. The line between prediction and ... Read More

  • Art Matters: Howard University's Department of Art from 1921 to 1971
    • Abstract: Since its 1867 establishment, Howard University has been an epicenter of Black intellectualism frequently hailed as the "capstone of Negro education." Historian Zachery R. Williams notes that "from 1926 to 1970 [Howard] represented the center of Black intellectual life, and its scholars were heirs to the legacy of W. E. B. DuBois' 'talented tenth'" (Williams 1). The Howard Department of Art is a central yet understudied component of this intellectual nexus. Founded in 1921 by James V. Herring (1887–1969), the Department of Art at Howard University was the first stand-alone studio art department at a historically Black college or university (HBCU). During the 1930s, the department became the center for both the ... Read More
