A generation of critically acclaimed contemporary artists has thought deeply about how America's history of slavery has shaped our society. Legacies: Contemporary Artists Reflect on Slavery brings together the works of Kara Walker, Faith Ringgold, Carrie Mae Weems, Fred Wilson, Whitefield Lovell, Mel Edwards, Lorenzo Pace, Betye Saar, Marc Latamie, Willie Birch, and a host of others into this publication, a companion to the 2006 exhibition of the same name. The New-York Historical exhibition presented provocative interpretations that captured the tension between the reprehensible past and the emotions of the present.
