AfriCOBRA

Show Summary

AfriCOBRA is a historical documentary that takes viewers back to 1968 Chicago, Illinois, where a revolutionary visual arts movement was initiated by a group of African American artists who sought to define and create a uniquely Black American aesthetic in visual media as had been done previously in American music and dance. In 1968, the Civil Rights movement was in full stride. After decades of de facto oppression, the African American community, along with a strong group of sympathizers and activists, finally demanded full equality and the legal prosecution of openly prejudice practices. This revolution inspired artists around the world to create works that represented the struggle of Black America. The Organization for Black American Culture (OBAC) painted a large mural called the Wall of Respect that commemorated black revolutionaries and inspired Black artists to create a visual arts movement that would propel American Civil Rights. That movement, in the years to come, would be known around the world as AfriCOBRA.
