Charles White in the 21st Century: Relevant & Righteous


Charles White [1918-1979] is widely recognized as one of the most important and influential African American artists of the 20th Century. Over the course of a 40-year career, he created powerfully gripping interpretations of the Black experience, with a confidence and technical skill that defined his mastery as a painter and draftsman. Although his art focused nearly exclusively on African American subjects, he believed his work had a broader appeal, stating, “I like to think that my work has a universality to it. I deal with love, hope, courage, freedom, and dignity – the full gamut of the human experience.”
