African art is an area which has had little to no critical philosophical discussion from the African perspective, leaving the assessment and discussion this artistic experience to Euro-American scholars with scant understanding of the sensibilities inherent in African and African Diaspora art. This book looks back to the values relating to the concept of beauty in Africana art and aesthetics, making a careful effort in the first three chapters to introduce African philosophy and aesthetic values to the reader before discussing Africana art within cultural contexts.
