Spiral, founded in 1963 by Romare Bearden, Norman Lewis, and Charles Alston, was a group of black American artists in New York. This article, originally published in ARTnews in 1966, explores the attitudes of Spiral’s membership about civil rights, Negro art, the “Negro Image,” and the group’s purpose, with commentary from the members themselves.
