People’s Art History of the United States: 250 Years of Activist Art and Artists Working in Social Justice Movements

People’s Art History of the United States: 250 Years of Activist Art and Artists Working in Social Justice Movements

by Nicolas Lampert

A good antidote to those purply grey old art history textbooks they make college students read. Skip college and get analytical! Author and radical artist Nicolas Lampert combines historical sweep with detailed examinations of individual artists and works in a politically charged narrative that spans the conquest of the Americas, the American Revolution, slavery and abolition, western expansion, the suffragette movement and feminism, civil rights movements, environmental movements, LGBT movements, antiglobalization movements, contemporary antiwar movements, and beyond. All the non-boring art history you probably always wanted to learn but didn't know it was possible to ask for. Yay!
