Movin’ on Up—and Out

Remapping 1970s African American Visual Culture

(p.94) Chapter 4 Movin’ on Up—and Out
Black Cultural Production after Civil Rights

Courtney R. Baker

University of Illinois Press

This chapter discusses the visual culture of 1970s Black America, focusing especially on popular culture artifacts such as film, television, and comics, to make sense of the idea of movement in the postsegregationist United States. It attends to the representation of black people in various locations—from the inner city to the suburbs to a historical memory of the plantation slavery, the middle passage, and an African motherland—in visual forms, including Afrocentrist iconography, photography, and fine art. By attending to popular images, an important if not fuller picture of Black visual politics during the post-civil rights era becomes apparent.
