David C. Driskell – Part II

This is Part II of the two part series on David C. Driskell. I’ve listed my sources for the last two episodes below.

Also, when you get a chance, watch the HBO documentary titled, “Black Art: In the Absence of Light.” It’s based upon one of Driskell’s major exhibitions he organized and curated.
