Five Artists - 1971 (1/2)

Greetings All,
This is February 1, 2011 and I have decided to post each day something about Black Art. It may be about educators, visual artists or fiber/quilt artists, etc. I'm not sure on who, what, when or where, but I do hope that you enjoy the videos/slide shows as much as I did in looking at them. Some of these artists I did not know about and some are my favorites. Today's film includes footage on Barbara Chase-Riboud, Charles White, and Betty Blayton.
