Smethurst is author of the book "Behold the Land: The Black Arts Movement in the South, 1963-1985." During his talk at MSU, Smethurst will recount how the black arts movement changed American thought about what constitutes art and how the movement made Southern cities like Atlanta, Houston, Miami, New Orleans and Nashville major arts centers.
