“Certainly, there is, for the American Negro artist…a great field of unused material ready for his art.”


 “…there is sufficient matter to furnish a black artist with a lifetime of creative work.”

 
“To these the Negro artist can give his racial individuality, his heritage of rhythm and warmth, and his incongruous humor that so often, as in the Blues, becomes ironic laughter mixed with tears.”

 
“The road for the serious black artist, then, who would produce a racial art is most certainly rocky and the mountain is high.”

 

- Langston Hughes, “The Negro Artist and the Racial Mountain”, 1926
