Kara Walker

This week as we consider contemporary writers and their reflections on the antebellum South, the Civil War, and Reconstruction, I thought you might enjoy one of my favorite artists, Kara Walker. Walker is noted for her innovative use of silhouettes to depict African-American life during these eras. Her work is visible at the High in Atlanta and you can read about her work here.
