In her first chapter, Farrington outlines fundamentals for evaluating a work of art; she defines primary and secondary source materials and explains themes such as iconography, formalism, biography, semiotics, psychoanalysis, and contextual analysis. This section provides important art-historical terms for students, as the study of African American art inevitably involves attention to identity politics and the historical and ongoing phenomena of race and racism, yet the subject also requires that students grasp fundamental methods for considering art and visual culture. Farrington highlights Colonial-era and Federal-period architecture and design in chapters 2 and 3, exploring the larger context in which Africans found themselves in North America. She begins with the history of the Middle Passage, delves into the artistic knowledge Africans brought with them, and then describes the possibilities for artistic production by enslaved and free laborers. These chapters investigate architectural structures, musical instruments, earthenware, metalwork, woodwork, and other forms of craftsmanship. When she reaches the nineteenth century, nameable artists appear, including Dave the Potter, the quilter Harriet Powers, and the dress designer Elizabeth Keckley, who fashioned clothing for First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln.
