Among the many reasons for an increased interest in the works of African American artists has been the hope of identifying unique elements that may suggest connections with Black Africa. If such connections are found, speculations on the uniqueness of a black aesthetic would be more than mere conjecture. Critics of continuity still maintain that the cultural connections between Africa and America are superficial and that no really intelligent black person would place so much emphasis on the African past.
