A personal account of the formation and history of the blk art group by Keith Piper

Black women artists are here, we exist and we exist positively despite the racial, sexual and class oppressions which we suffer. However, we must first point out the way in which these oppressions have operated in a wider context - not just the art world, but also in the struggles for Black and female liberation.

—Chila Kumari Burman, ‘There Have Always Been Great Black Women Artists,’ in Charting the Journey: Writings by Black and Third World Writers, 1988 (via blackcontemporaryart)
