The introduction sets the stage for understanding artists’ demands for cultural equity in the late 1960s and early ’70s. A brief survey of the supports and venues for African American art prior to the civil rights movement is followed by a description of changes and key gains that occurred in response to artists’ demands and protests. The introduction ends with a survey of the literature on the relationships between artists of color and art museums.
