Event Description

Chokwe Mask

Black American Voices was initially presented as a book in 2017. It includes African works of art, photographs of Black Americans, and narratives from their lives. Drawing this intimate connection with Africa and Black Americans illustrates the continuation of African cultures, shared values, and emotions as they have flowed to the descendants of Africans. The African art on display is from The Antonio & Betty Zamora Collection of African Art. The collection includes more than 500 works gathered by Antonio “Tony” Zamora and his wife Betty throughout their nearly sixty years of marriage. The selected Black American photographs were borrowed from photo albums and archives of families and friends of African descent living in America. The narratives are the result of conversations and interviews that book editor and collection trustee Joe Barry Carroll has had with family, friends, and others over the years. Gold Sponsors: Purdue University Black Cultural Center and Holder Law Office
