Databases for Researching African American Art

There is plenty of information on African American art and artists available in databases described elsewhere in this guide.  Finding information on lesser-known artists will require additional research. 

Newspaper Articles

Newspapers are excellent sources of information on artists and their work. These sources can help you locate information on artists and exhibitions as reported by the local media and can help you learn of museums that hold a particular artist's work.
