“Black Art Matters” with Robin and James Miller

Program for Sunday, April 24, 2022

While we’d probably all agree with the title of this Sunday’s program, “Black Art Matter,” let’s take some time to deepen our understanding of why they matter so much. Robin Joyce Miller and James W. Miller will share the video Black Art Matters: Master Artists Tell Our Story created with support from the Cotuit Center for the Arts as part of their BLM Series and lead a discussion afterwards. This presentation highlights the struggle that African American artists have had getting recognition for the incredible talent that they have displayed and the contributions they have made to the American cultural landscape.

She is currently a resident artist at the Zion Union Heritage Museum in Hyannis, MA where her mixed media collage works of art are exhibited.  In 2018, Robin and her husband, James W. Miller, published The Faithful Journey – From Slavery to Presidency, a revised and more comprehensive edition of their first book, Rhythms of a Faithful Journey. Together, they perform and conduct Race Relationship workshops. The Milllers have residences in Bronx, NY and Marstons Mills, MA.
