Perhaps best known for painting the Black Jesus, on the dome of St. Cecilia Church, during the Civil Rights movement, he has also shown his work documenting the once strong relationship between Jewish and African American musicians, to great acclaim.
His newest works, depicting the theme Tikkun Olam, Repair of the World, will be displayed along with Islamic and Christian art, hence the very timely show, the world needs now more than ever, A Family Reunion.
