Kwame Brathwaite: Black Is Beautiful by Kwame Brathwaite

In the late 1950s and throughout the 1960s, Kwame Brathwaite used his photography to popularize the political slogan “Black Is Beautiful.” This monograph―the first-ever dedicated to Brathwaite’s remarkable career―tells the story of a key, but under-recognised figure of the second Harlem Renaissance. Inspired by the writings of activist and black nationalist Marcus Garvey, this book offers a long-overdue exploration of Brathwaite’s life and work.
