Getty Research Institute African American Art History Initiative Oral Histories, 2018-2020

Scope and Content of Collection

These records comprise oral history interviews conducted in 2018, 2019, and 2020 in conjunction with the Getty Research Institute's (GRI) African American Art History Initiative. Individual oral histories with postwar African American artists were conducted by the Oral History Center (OHC) at UC Berkeley. The subjects, chosen in consultation with the AAAHI Advisory Committee, focuses on understudied senior artists whose first-person stories are critical to the study of African American art history. Recordings also include group discussions organized and facilitated by Rebecca Peabody, the Head of GRI Research Projects and Programs. Oral histories will accrue as the OHC continues their work with additional artists over the duration of the research initiative.

Arrangement

Materials are listed in one series of interviews. Interviews are then arranged in two categories: the individual oral histories conducted by the Oral History Center at the University of California, Berkeley, and the group interviews solely conducted by the Getty Research Institute.
