Praise for Art on My Mind:
"In an art world obsessed with identity politics, Art on My Mind is a long-overdue rescue of the liberating, rather than confining, power of art."
"Passionate and highly personal."
–Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Sharp and persuasive."
–The New York Times Book Review
"[Art on My Mind] is a guide to the ways that political meaning and esthetic pleasure may be discovered, bound together, in many works by contemporary artists of color."
