News & Notes continues its series on the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. Today, the focus is on the arts and the artists that fueled the imagination of a generation.

Joining in are two civil rights veterans: Ysaye Maria Barnwell, a member of the socially conscious singing group, Sweet Honey In the Rock; and Paul Von Blum, a former volunteer for the Student Nonviolent Co-coordinating Committee, now a professor of art history and African-American studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.
