African-American artists Romare Bearden and Charles White are presented as "griots," or traditional storyteller keepers of culture. Narrator Primus Mason Davy discusses many examples of their art and interviews Julia Hotton, Director of Manhattan East Gallery, and Russell Goings, a collector of the work of Bearden and White. Biographical information, discussion of the role of art in creating cultural understanding, composition and technique, and the influence of music are emphasized.
