About the Author

My name is Jessica Brown and I am studying Secondary Education. Writing is something I've always enjoyed as a hobby as it helps put my jumbled thoughts into words and allows me to use my voice. By disgust of how normalised sexual assualt is in Australia, I decided to write poems of my own and others experience to raise awareness of the issue.

Collectors Bernard I. Lumpkin and Carmine D. Boccuzzi have championed emerging artists of African descent through acquisitions, museum loans, and institutional support. This lavishly illustrated volume showcases their mission-driven collection and contextualizes works by more than 30 artists.--Victoria Valentine "Culture Type"
There's a renaissance of sorts happening in the contemporary art world right now, in which artists of African descent, particularly emerging artists, are enjoying unprecedented influence and visibility--Emily Dinsdale "Dazed"
With early works by renowned artists like Kara Walker and Mickalene Thomas presented alongside more recent creations from emerging artists like Sable Elyse Smith and Arcmanoro Niles, the show creates a dialogue with itself. Taken together, one gets a survey of the ways in which two subsequent generations of black artists are exploring everything from language and social abstraction to landscapes and the colour black.--Wilbert L. Cooper "i-D"
an impressive collection of African-American art, with works by both emerging and well-known artists--Sarah Cascone "Artnet"
Young, Gifted and Black' elaborates a kind of laundry list of luminaries [...] a roll call of two generations of Black artists who are preeminent across a range of media.--Seph Rodney "Hyperallergic"
a symphony of voices and visions from across generations all around the globe, creating a mellifluous confluence of style, media, and subject matter.--Sara Rosen "Document Journal"
For Bernard Lumpkin, collecting art has always been about family.--Victoria Valentine "Artsy"
