   schema:reviewBody ""Creating Their Own Image marks the first comprehensive history of African-American women artists, from slavery to the present day." "Using an analysis of stereotypes of Africans and African Americans in Western art and culture as a springboard, Lisa Farrington here richly details hundreds of important works - many of which deliberately challenge these same identity myths, of the carnal Jezebel, the asexual Mammy, the imperious Matriarch - in crafting a portrait of artistic creativity unprecedented in its scope and ambition." "Weaving together an expansive collection of artists, styles, and periods, Farrington argues that for centuries African-American women artists have created an alternative vision of how women of color can, are, and might be represented in American culture. From utilitarian objects such as quilts and baskets to a wide array of fine arts, Creating Their Own Image serves up evidence of the fundamental human need to convey one's life, one's emotions, one's experiences, on a canvas of one's own making."--BOOK JACKET." ;
