The Black Arts Movement: Then

The Black Arts Movement was the artistic "branch" of the Black Power Movement and sparked a renaissance of Black creativity that inspired Black people to publishing houses, magazines, journals and art institutions. The movement also influenced the creation of African-American studies departments at U.S. universities.  (Photo:  Tim Boxer/Getty Images)
