This presentation will discuss his life, his painting, and his Hartford Connecticut community. This lecture will be given Cynthia Hawkins, Ph.D. She is the Gallery Director and Curator at SUNY Geneseo’s Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery; her research interests are 19th African American History and Art History, culture, museums, and theory.
