Stacy I. Morgan is an assistant professor of American studies at the University of Alabama.
African American artists sustained an interest in social realism well into the Cold War era, significantly longer than many of their white counterparts. Morgan (American studies, U. of Alabama) presents a window into the world of black social realism and its engagement with leftist political activism and civil rights struggles. The murals of Charles White, graphics of John Wilson, poetry of Frank Marshall Davis, and novels of Willard Motley are used as centerpieces for broader discussion of the concerns of social realism within each genre.
