    Profiles lithograph artist Robert Blackburn, one of the few black printmakers to emerge from WPA-sponsored arts projects, including the Harlem Art Center, during the Thirties. His prints have been exhibited widely and he has also had a long teaching career, but the now 77-year-old Blackburn is best known as the founder and director of the Printmaking Workshop, which recently celebrated its fiftieth anniversary. The video features interviews with Blackburn, fellow artists, art critics and curators, and many of his present and former students.
