The African Diaspora Alliance serves as a facilitator through a variety of diverse. Many young Africans are rising above all odds to become great personalities and impacting lives within the continent and beyond. The African Diaspora Alliance. 5 September at 04:51 ·. The 'We Are Healed' Tour is a declaration and written prescription to ourselves from ourselves, that we are healed. Each day we embody our most healed selves, as we recognize healing is not a linear process.

Between 1890 and 1918, Western colonial expansion in Africa led to the looting of many pieces of sub-Saharan African art, artifacts or natural heritage that were subsequently brought to Europe and displayed. These objects entered the collections of natural history museums, art museums (both encyclopedic and specialist) and private collections in Europe and the United States.

Drawing from performance practices in Africa, the Caribbean, the United States, and black Britain, this landmark collection delineates the cultural specificity of an African diaspora theatre that, while it appears to 'wear the mask' of conformity to EuroAmerican values, enacts a profoundly different world view aimed at confronting an oppressive past and reaffirming the humanity of black peoples.

Contemporary African art is European art that happens to be made by Africans, Robbins told a forum. Newark’s curator of African art, Christa Clarke, has gradually shifted the museum’s focus toward the contemporary. The museum brushed aside the criticism and in 2005–06 mounted African Art Now, a groundbreaking survey drawn from the collection of the businessman and photographer Jean Pigozzi. It included work by key figures not yet widely known in America, such as the Kinshasa painter Chéri Samba and Malian photographer Seydou Keïta. In 2010, the museum opened its first gallery for contemporary African art, and, says Clarke, we’re acquiring aggressively.

With over 350 beautifully photographed illustrations from Dan Parker's private art collection. A well researched, powerfully written document of African and contemporary art, this book is sure to keep you engaged. This exciting and informative book is hand sewn(Smyth sewn), and cloth bound.
Reviews (3)
I purchased this book over five years ago, and was a bit vexed about writing this review, but finally decided to do so.
Among the best publications I have about African cultural-art in my possession is: Making History: African Collectors and the Canon of African Art, unfortunately, not this publication.

In the case of Daniel T. Parker's art collection - or his idea of "living with the heritage of one's ancestors" - I can respect his passion to connect with many "Africanisms"... But, as a 20+ year collector of African and "black" American cultural-historical and contemporary arts, and referencing his book over several years, it is apparent to me that Mr. Parker is not entirely scholarly or as aware on the subject matter as he ought to be. I would have expected better accuracy.

Frankly, I have observed similar veins of naivety between Daniel T. Parker and Mr. Eric Edward's collections, (The Cultural Museum of African Art) Brooklyn, NY made public.

On one hand, Daniel T. Parker's collection of paintings are intriguing.
He possesses an affinity and appreciation for "black" art, and understands the contributions from "black" experiences... But, on the other hand, his over-all collection of objects are overwhelming and displays as rooms of clutter and "cheap or lower value" junk to anyone with a refined eye... "Market-art copies" showing no signs of use or vetted attributions. In reality, well over 90 percent of African historical-cultural "art" falls within this same category - popular and fad archetypes - byproducts of workshops and carvers (not representative of African societies today)... Mere fragments of a latter era, lost in time. This is not necessarily a significant problem ... But, credulously believing these objects are otherwise is wrong and a significant fault. This is also true about various"Africanisms" and other historical-cultural arts held in many world museums and institutions.

Research about the French scholar Charles de Brosses will clear up any misconceptions about the word "fetish" and the pervasive Eurocentric notions about the "irrationality" of African religions, creative ideas and beliefs.

When it comes to African crafts, there are far too many flaws and even bawdry terms that "blacks" of the diaspora should not use expressed within this book; European colonial descriptive terms of miseducation; "Janus" and "fetish" are examples (pages 30 and 39).
There are just far too many errors and objects incorrectly identified:
(1). Page 38 refers to a Makonde "shetani" as a tree of life carving. In essence, it is not, but is consistent with an "Ujamaa" or "dimingo" carving from the 1960s.
(2). Page 33 identifies a Senufo helmet mask as a "Firespitter", that happens to be another erroneous Western term. This mask's origin is traced to the Tyeli people, assimilated into the Senufo groups. The correct term for this mask is "Kponyungo", which literally means; "head", "the dead one", "corpse" or "to kill" in a very broad translation; funeral mask.
(3). Page 45 briefly describes a former "ngulu" sword incorrectly described as a "throwing knife" from Central Africa.
(scantly understood or confirmed, acclaimed to have been used to decapitate the heads of "black" slaves of the Ngala, Ngombe, Doko and other peoples within the Congo and Central Africa, yet, in the early 20th C., became known as a weakened symbolic ceremonial instrument).
(4). Dogon figurative carvings on page 48 are essentially known to have originated from the Kouroumba / Tellem, including the historical Keita (griot) clan assimilated into the Dogon collective.
(5). Islamic and European missionary colonials either destroyed (burned) robbed and looted vast amounts of African genuine cultural relics, while maintaining a hold on the very best for their own nexus of capitalism and as private cultural trophies. Environmental erosion claimed many others.

Indeed, we need more "black" participation and involvement in collecting, and to tell our own honest stories. Yet, ignorance, disinterest and (credulous) naivety continues to destroy us.

I enjoy looking at the beautiful pictures of African Art and reading about the art. I have gotten many ideas from looking at all the colorful African Art photographed in the book. Each page is full of beautiful, colorful African Art pieces. This is an excellent coffee table book. It has renewed my appreciation of African Art.

This book will be a revelation for most folks - especially those who think they know something about the art world.

Daniel Parker is an AfrAmerican who, although not a rich basketball player or entertainer, has put his money where his heart obviously is - in the amazingly colorful art of, as they say, "people of color".

His collection is a sight to behold. His duplex home is literally filled from wall-to-wall, side-to-side, top-to-bottom, ceiling-to-floor with art from Africa, African-America and the African diaspora.

His collection shows everybody - especially "white" art lovers - that the museums and galleries they usually frequent are missing a lot. They're like the music world without the contributions of jazz, blues, R & B, soul or hip-hop.

Wake up...and smell the oil paint!
