Spotlight: African-Americans In Art

February 9, 2015

Happy Monday, if you love Mondays….Today I have a collection of  artists, poets and writers. I decided to mix things up a bit. These chosen seven have each put their stamp in the art world, creating and weaving their own vision. Each of these videos gives a glimpse of what their work is all about.
