Original Manifesto published in The Furies

From The Furies, Lesbian/Feminist Monthly, Volume 1, issue 5, June-July 1972

Art in the past has been the pursuit of the privileged with few exceptions, it has been white, male, usually middle to upper class, and overwhelmingly heterosexual. All forms of the arts—music, dance, literature, painting, film, etc.—reflect the concerns of this dominant group with a few male homosexuals thrown in for good measure. Only recently have the concerns of other people and their art begun to emerge, especially within the Black community, and in its beginning stages among women.
