Bogalusa

(bōgəlo͞o`sə), city (1990 pop. 14,280), Washington parish, SE La.; inc. 1914. It is a manufacturing and trading center of the Pearl River valley. Its name derives from the Native American–named creek, Bogue Lusa ("smoky or dark waters"), that flows through the city. Bogalusa was founded in 1906 when the lumber industry established operations in the region's extensive pine woods. Manufactures include textiles, fabricated metal and wood products, food, machinery, and furniture. Louisiana State Univ.'s forestry school is located there.

Across city and country lines and beyond the debates of whether artistic expression, political empowerment, or self-defense were the needed routes to "black power," the central thrust of those concerned with black liberation during the 1960s and 1970 was remaining connected to and representative of the black community, whether one was an artist on Chicago's Southside or an activist in Bogalusa, Louisiana. The four pieces we have chosen reflect this thrust within the scopes of Black Arts- and Black Power-era print culture and local movements.
