African American artist Loïs Mailou Jones (1905-1998) was unapologetic in her desire to make history–professionally and artistically. This lecture considers Jones’s legacy as both an artist and an artist educator on the canon of African American art. We will also consider the significance of and challenges faced when writing Black women into the canon of Western art.
