Black Art-Ancestral Legacy: The African Impulse in African American Art is a photographic exhibition that addresses the question posed by African American poet Countee Cullen in 1926: “What is Africa to me?” Black Art-Ancestral Legacy provides a number of examples from twentieth century African American artists-both trained and untrained-that visually respond to this question. These modern artists draw heavily on African influence, while simultaneously reinterpreting it for a different time and place. The result is a lively and vibrant mix of artwork.

In Partnership with the City of Elgin Community Development & Humanities Texas, this program is supported in part by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Friends of Elgin Parks Present Movies in the Park
