With this 30th anniversary issue of the IRAAA, we commemorate the enormous collecting efforts of the journal's founder Samella Lewis. We survey Lewis’s collecting life to mark this anniversary because the history of  her collections and the hisory of the journal are intertwined. The first issue of the journal appeared in fall 1976 and was then called Black Art: an international quarterly but its seed was planted in 1942 when Lewis began collecting art.  Articles: “On Reaching 30”; “A Visit with Collector Extraordinaire (Samella Lewis)” by Alitash Kebede; “Works from the Samella Lewis Collection at the Hampton University Museum”; “Samella Lewis’ Catlett Archive at Hampton University” by Valinda Carroll; “The Sargent Johnson Collection”; and profiles of contributors to the issue.
