Editorial Reviews

Review


"Nell Irvin Painter's Creating Black Americans is destined to become one of the most beautiful history textbooks in recent memory, with roughly 150 creative representations of the African-American experience ranging from painting and sculpture to graffiti art and quilts. Most of the images are in stunning color, some of them filling an entire page."--Ron Hogan, Beatrice.com

Read the entire interview here.


"...incorporates a sweeping, historic narrative with the emotional expression of more than 150 works of African-American art."--Ebony, February 2006


"Nell Irvin Painter brings her considerable skills and insight to Creating Black Americans. Her excellent introduction to the black American experience will serve any interested reader well....History, the author notes, exists in both the past and present. And Painter's compelling use of black art...emphasizes this point to great effect....Through word and image, [she] has produced a narrative of African-American history that will profit its readers."--Kenneth R. Janken, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, in the New York Post
