The Black Arts Movement (BAM) encompassed a group of artists, musicians, novelists, and playwrights, whose work combined innovative approaches to literature, film, music, visual arts and theatre. With a heightened consciousness of black agency and autonomy-along with the radical politics of the Civil Rights Movement, the Black Muslims and the Black Panthers-these figures represented a collective effort to defy the status quo of American life and culture. Between the late 1950s and the end of the 1970s, the movement produced some of America's most original and controversial artists and intellectuals. In The Encyclopedia of the Blacks Arts Movement, Verner D. Mitchell and Cynthia Davis have collected essays on the key figures of the movement including Maya Angelou, James Baldwin, Amiri Baraka, Nikki Giovanni, Larry Neal, Sun Ra, Sonia Sanchez, Ntozake Shange, and Archie Shepp. Additional essays focus on Black Theatre magazine, the Negro Ensemble Company, and lesser known individuals-including Kathleen Collins, Tom Dent, Bill Gunn, June Jordan, and Barbara Ann Teer-and groups, such as AfriCOBRA and the New York Umbra Poetry Workshop. Featuring essays by contemporary scholars and rare photographs of BAM artists, The Encyclopedia of the Blacks Arts Movement is an essential reference for students and scholars of twentieth century American literature and African-American cultural studies.

The Black Arts Movement (BAM) of the 1960s and early 1970s was the artistic and aesthetic side of the Black Power Movement. BAM was perhaps more global in scale and remains a subject of scholarly and intellectual interest to this day. Mitchell (Univ. of Memphis) and Davis (San Jacinto College), both professors of English and accomplished specialists in African American literature, have compiled an incisive, captivating history of this radical political and social movement, which raised race consciousness through art and was a unique 20th-century artistic movement. Arranged alphabetically, entries cover political and social leaders, artists, authors, works, and major themes of the movement; this compendium is an excellent introduction to and summary of BAM. Topics such as black women writers, marginalization, sexual identity, voodoo aesthetics, student nonviolence, poetry on Emmett Till, and the black aesthetic are cogent and well summarized. Influential longer works merit attention, but significant short stories and poems--for example, James Baldwin's "Sonny's Blues" and Amiri Baraka's "Monday in B-Flat"--also have their own entries. Each entry includes suggestions for further reading. The encyclopedia includes a brief foreword and preface, a time line, and a helpful index. Summing Up: Essential. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals; general readers.--CHOICE
