Few of these artists received formal instruction. Most overcame hardship, particularly those living in the Deep South during the Jim Crow era. Still, in spite of the challenges before them, as the title of this inclusive exhibition confirms, they have been carried over by their respective commitments to their unique practices, creating inspiring works in a variety of media such as drawing, painting, and sculpture.
