Black Arts Movement Conference

Creole Osceola’s Mardi Gras Indians perform at the opening ceremony of the Black Arts Movement Conference on Sept. 9 in the PSB Atirum with a traditional Creole prayer and song. Panels about black authors, poets and black culture were held in commemoration of the 51st anniversary of BAM, the name given to a group of politically motivated black writers and other artists who emerged in the wake of the Black Power Movement from 1965-75.
