Thank you Martin Luther King Jr. and all the others who painstakingly asked for equal rights for all. Without your work, our appreciation of art would be less so. You helped open doors and paved the way for art education, art gallery inclusion, and art market sales of master artists. Without this, our world would have fewer voices, fewer inspirations, and a vibrance that only the African American artists can capture.
