“INTO•ME•I•SEE" honors the work and guidance of “The Black Arts Movement” (BAM), known as the spirit and sister to the Black Power Movements of the 1960’s and 70’s. BAM is a collective of Black Artists, mostly writers and poets, who created with the intention of uniting and uplifting Black people globally. The founders of BAM are Amira Baraka & Larry Neal. The Black Arts Movement spawned artist and writers such as Maya Angelou, Sonia Sanchez, Nikki Giovanni, & Gwendolyn Brooks to name a few.
