In Chicago 1968, a group of artists came together and began to define a uniquely black aesthetic in visual arts. They sought to make art that spoke directly to the needs, aspirations and experiences of black America, and that celebrated what was beautiful and heroic about black culture. The seed of what would become the AfriCOBRA (African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists) collective was planted at the Wall of Respect, a mural on a Chicago building that depicted black heroes and leaders. The wall became both a meeting place and the communitys visual affirmation of African American cultural, intellectual and political heritage.
