Antique African-American Folk Art Sculpture from the Jim Linderman Collection. Ranging from the 19th to early 20th Century, a group of examples showing how African-Americans were depicted by folk artists. Some with care taken to be accurate (as limited by their artistic training) and others with a most racist tint. Exaggerated and stereotypical renderings of African-Americans were the rule in popular culture, but with some of these figures attention was taken not to offend.
