Notes: 

Africobra was started at the site of the "Wall of Respect" near east 47th street in Chicago during the late sixties. Its name meant African commune of bad relevant artists. It was formed to provide a visual component to the Black cultural revolution of that era. It started in Chicago and relocated its base to Howard University in Washington DC when its founder became the chairperson of Howard's Art Department. Many of its memebers were college professors in the visual arts.
