Santa Monica, California: Astro Artz, 1990. Profusely illustrated in black & white. 88 pp. Decorated paper cover by Adrian Piper (in color). 28 x 21.7 cm. Contents: "Black and blue: toward an African aesthetic," by E. Ethelbert Miller; "A second heart: racism, identity and the blues aesthetic," by Wanda Coleman; "What's goin' on?

From the Editorial by Steven Durland: "I was quizzing [Keith Antar Mason], wanting to know what it is about the blues that goes beyond a 12-bar musical form. Is there blues painting or blues dance, or blues performanc art. Keith didn't so much answer my question as convince me that there were enough strong opinions on the subject to make it a topic worth exploring." As new. Item #73551
