The Jacob Lawrence Visual Archive and Education Center

Logo for The Jacob Lawrence Visual Archive and Education Center
Jacob Lawrence (1917-2000) was "the first American artist of African descent to receive sustained mainstream recognition in the United States." Many of his paintings were on historical themes or inspired by the lives of historical figures such as Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman. This site includes images of his paintings, a biography, essays on Lawrence's artistic technique, a bibliography, links to related sites, and lesson plans.

Beautiful presentation of the Jacob Lawrence Migration Series along with background information on Lawrence, the arts in Harlem, and the experience of African-American migrants. The teaching materials offered on the site are geared toward K-12, mostly middle school and below, but the primary and secondary resources on the site can serve a wide range of teaching goals.
