From the earliest cave paintings to the most avant-garde museum pieces, art has a way of connecting people. It expresses humanity. It’s a window into the soul. It presents an opportunity to step into a completely foreign or all too familiar world. Black artists and their art are exceptional in this regard. Their art is political, poignant. Soft and Soothing. It is a tool of not only reclaiming humanity, but documenting the struggles that have brought them and the community this far.
Here at kweliTV we want to celebrate the stories of these artists. From politically charged giants like Sonia Sanchez and Zora Neale Hurston, to trailblazers like Slum Village and Sara Gomez, they all deserve their time in the spotlight. Kick off your Black History Month by finding the art that connects with you.
