"It’s important to be aware that there isn’t a single history or narrative of Black art, just as there isn’t a single history of “white art”, or single history of art at all. "
Alayo Akinkugbe runs the acclaimed Instagram account ABlackHistoryofArt, which celebrates Black artists, sitters, curators and thinkers who were typically overlooked in art history. A young inspiring recent History of Art graduate of the University of Cambridge, Alayo created her Instagram account @ABlackHistoryofArt in February 2020 and only a few months into her digital journey, she was selected by The New York Times as one of the '5 Art accounts to Follow on Instagram'.
