  1. Once again, the innate genius of people of color, whose contributions have systematically been depreciated, demonstrates the deliberate and persistent effort on the part of the European to hide who we really are. Nevertheless, that genius shines through and will continue to do so – why? Because we are the "lost children of the house of Israel" and are beginning to awaken to our true identity. Read Deuteronomy 28:15-68 and take note of the unique form of enslavement experienced by only one group of people in all of human history. Soon, the tables will be turned and new history will be written. It is time now to seek peace with the Most High God while there is still time. (2 Cor. 5:17-20) This is our message to the European, seek peace now, for the destruction of this evil system is imminent. Seek peace and live.

  2. 29:35 – Its kinda weird how she says blacks couldnt connect to a white guys abstract painting, so they have to do it themselves, to be able to connect with it. Isnt that the whole point of "Abstract", that its abstract and even an alien from outer space would be able to connect with it?? Isnt she being kinda racist? dunno just wondering.

  3. Thank you ever so much.I have waited over 40 years for such true and positive art & Artists of color to be interviewed in such an informative way,as well as the knowledge, there are also actual people of color who own and operate their own Art Galleries… Yes I think it's surly time to move forward while making sure we study Artists of color as it does make a huge different…So I for one will share this documentary with every one I know by all mean necessary…And might I say top quality work all round indeed.

  4. i feel validated in being able to create work regardless of subject matter. now i just need a support system worthy of my hard work. BUY QUALITY ART.

  5. Good Morning it is easy to see disparities in people of color the UNITED NATIONS, world country are asking what country would do this to Their own citizens they take taxes on everything including tax from children. We people look must stop turn our heads and saying it wasn't me well no not this time American murders us for entertainment like one go to movie. The inhuman, non humanitarian condition……We have work all of our fathers lives to just earn some resources for our families help us world……

  6. I agree with everything Mr. Marshall said. However, he omitted one significant point. President Barack Obama is not a descendant of enslaved Africans, which (in my opinion) is the very reason he was selected to be elected as president of the United States. He is therefore removed from the plight of black people in this country.

  7. Why does this documentary not get more attention?? it is great and speaks to an issue that is going on that many don't know about. Although many aspects of the nation have taken steps towards diversity, the art world is still an entity that for some reason still operates as if segregation still exist. I went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the only piece of black art work i saw was in a back hallway next to the bathrooms 🙁

  8. wonderful movie full of information and history of the Black Art Culture. Thank you for the energy and effort bestowed into the creation. I love it!!

  9. Why do we constantly crave validation from white people? Art is something that should come from deep within therefore there is no such thing as it being unacceptable. That would mean that the artist them self are unacceptable as a person (human being). True knowledge of yourself generates self love which results in self respect which fuels self determination. Let us create our own communities based on our own natural character traits without emulating the exclusively oppressive, soul robbing culture you find present in the other. Freedom is expression!!!

  10. You missing something- They want you sleep with them too. Many selling their souls to be in the lime- light. To solve this situation, we need to work together. Form groups and rent spaces and tour with our works. Develop a co-operation, get our own writer and marketer. Those of us who have the resources, start investing ourselves and our people.

  11. Eye opening !
    I am contemplating studying African American History at a local community college and gaining this job at The Harvey B Gantt center in Down Town Charlotte !
    In a way, I feel as though my days in public Elementary, public Middle and public High school were taken in vain because I really did not learn ANY THING that I feel would have benefited me ! This is sad !

  12. my only question is who was in charge of background music ??? not all but some people were almost completely drowned out by classical music scores?

  13. whites wanted SEGREGATION because the bible tells God's children to separate themselves from other peoples. COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM AND BE YE SEPERATE. IT WASN'T OUT OF HATE IT WAS OUT OF OBEDIENCE TO THEIR GOD.

  14. Racism is an evil born of ignorance and arrogance. People might be interested to read Primitivism in Modern Art….showing how early 20th cent artist such as Picasso and Matisse stole heavily from African art. It was thought African art had a visual sophistication and profundity that much of European art lacked.

  15. I gotta say, I've been doing art for over 40 years. Had some success early mainly cuz I'm in a small pond (Seattle), but unless you know somebody, or know somebody who knows somebody, catch a gallery owner drunk, high on drugs, or has just sold a painting for a chunk of cash and is feeling magnanimous, nobody has much of a chance getting in a gallery. I don't care if you're green, yellow, pink, or brown, it ain't happnin. Don't care how good you are. The government shit on Indians, Black people, Women and yes, even poor pink people. You ain't nothing unless you got bucks. Unless you're part of the art establishment.

  16. We've been creating art for tens of thousands of years and the europeans over the past few hundred believed they were the only one in the world whose art was important. Ha, you're not the center of the universe.

  17. This is a beautiful documentary – I'm so thankful to learn about the artists' experiences in the world and their honest, candid discussion about unjust, racist treatment. As an art teacher in public school in a diverse community, there is so much more I want to share with my students, including helping them feel represented in the (art) world. It makes me horribly sad and ashamed that groups of people hurt other groups of people. I will keep doing my best to inform and teach my own children and my students about empathy, love, and respect for fellow humankind. Peace to all my fellow citizens of earth.
