"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." "Art America" "[hooks] brings a welcome clarity to such issues as received art and the development of a Western canon." "San Francisco Examiner""
