A t the height of the 1960s civil rights movement, when "an overwhelmingly white art world ... tended to regard blacks as a social abstraction" (in the typically sharp words of critic Robert Hughes), Romare Bearden helped open eyes and minds with works of striking communication, beauty and power. The North Carolina-born Bearden strove to create a kind of art, as he put it, "in which the validity of my Negro experience could live and make its own logic." Out of that goal came the collages for which he would gain great fame and that continue to represent some of the finest American - not just African-American - art of the past 50 years.

The Sidebar Tavern The Sidebar truly is an anomaly.

This is not your big brother's Netscape browser. America Online introduced the preview version of its sleeker, hipper Netscape 6 last week at the annual Internet World Trade Show in Los Angeles. AOL says the slimmer browser is part of its "AOL Anywhere" strategy that lets members access the Internet from any device. The program is about half the size of earlier versions and works better with digital set-top television boxes and Web-enabled cell phones. The browser can be downloaded free at the Netscape Web site (www.

I FOUND some comfort in Morley Safer's mistake the other night while introducing a "60 Minutes" segment: "President Clinton will host Yasser Arafat and Benjamin Netanyahu this week during a summit in Washington."He was wrong, of course. Washington will not serve as a backdrop to the Middle East peace talks that begin tomorrow; that honor belongs to the Eastern Shore's Wye Plantation.Mr. Safer's writers (sorry Morley) evidently missed or ignored that detail, robbing the Eastern Shore of some rare diplomatic prestige.

Remember when the latest dance party wave hit Charm City? It was four or five years ago, when Underground and Taxlo sprung up, among others. Around that time, The Sidebar Tavern started hosting a soul night, though the party moved to another location soon thereafter. Now The Sidebar's back in the game with Reaction, a monthly Mod dance party with resident and guest DJs and live bands. The Things, a local psychedelic garage punk band, play tomorrow night, and the Dansettes, a '60s soul band fronted by three female singers, headline the July 14 Reaction.
