"Middle Passage blends the often-raw memories of classically trained artist Lawrence Baker with a revealing history of African American life starting in the 1700s...Well written and filled with skilled storytelling, it should appeal to a wide audience. "

Synopsis

Artist Lawrence Baker's middle passage involves encountering and overcoming various obstacles, none more daunting than the inertia of race, family and an inadequate early education. This book not only asks plain questions about the connections between Baker's complex inner life and art, but also probes the relationship between African-American social and cultural development and black art.
