What an honor is it to have my artwork included in a first-of-its-kind art exhibit, Telling A People’s Story: African American Children’s Illustrated Literature. The exhibit is being held at Miami University in Oxford, OH, through June 30th, 2018. In addition to exhibiting, I was invited to speak at a public event, and to university students, elementary school students, teachers and librarians, over the course of four days. It was a blast! My visit was sponsored by a grant from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation.
“Telling A People’s Story” looks at African-American cultural and historical identity through the lens of children’s illustrated literature, and features more than 100 original artworks from African-American children’s illustrated literature. Here’s a quick recap of my time in Oxford, Ohio!
