Portrait of African American Heroes: Illustrations by Ansel Pitcairn

From the youtube description: Visual artist Ansel Pitcairn displays and discusses the art in the book Portrait of African American Heroes. Maritri & Tantra-Zawadi perform with Ansel Pitcairn"s art as a backdrop.
I'm proud to say Ansel was a student of mine nearly 30 years ago. When I was teaching at PS 397 he and another one of my favorites, John Daniels, would often visit and Ansel would create murals to illustrate language arts and reading and math strategy skills. I wish I saved them. I own the above book and highly recommend it.
