African Americans have used the visual arts to express themselves for centuries. In this talk, Kirsten Pai Buick focuses on 19th century artists whose lives spanned a time of watershed social changes from slavery to emancipation.

She completed both her M.A. and Ph.D. in Art History at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.
