Elza Miles's Land and Lives is a thorough and unique account of pioneer black artists born in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The work of the early artists unfolds in the context of an African upbringing which encounters new religious disciplines and literacy, introduced through mission and government schools. This book narrates the process of internal conflict which the artists experienced in such a context as well as the artistic products which emerged.
