The Black Arts Legacies newsletter showcases, celebrates and honors the stories and contributions of Black artists in the PNW.
Artists represent music, performance, painting, sculpting and more. Many of the artists we feature are still living and creating their work in the region today, but we'll also tell the stories of creatives who helped shape our region and culture from many years ago.
