Resale Market – Malkia Roberts (1917-2004)

MALKIA (Swahili, “queen”) – “As a black artist and a black teacher, I have been gripped by the threads of an elemental and pervasive spirituality in the art of the so-called “Third World”. As a black woman, I feel strongly about my painting as a thread in that tapestry. I see it as an instrument of nourishment and strength for black people. Not political propaganda, not “anti-art”, but a source of positive imagery to negate subtle distorted stereotypes of the past, and to undergird our growing sense of identity, pride and direction.” Malkia Roberts, 1971 read more about Malkia Roberts
