BEYOND THE WEST AWAITS YOU-WHERE IS THE REST OF HISTORY WRITTEN?
The chapter Beyond the West is a complete chapter of art from a different part of the world.  It is the only chapter with art from a non-western part of the world. 

 In the history of painting in this country there was a movement of artists called the Harlem Rennaissance.  The Harlem Rennaissance was  a time when African-American artists first were free enough to make, show and sell their art works.  There were all types of artists in this movement including painters. 

Do you remember reading about or seeing anything about that in Beyond Books?  Well it isn't there, and then they give the reader one chapter on Eastern art.       

1.  What do you think about that? 

2. As a student do you think it is fair that parts of history are left out? 

3. Have you thought about this or come across this before in school?  If  you have not I want you to give it some thought and answer this question?
