Minnie Eva Jones was born on December 12th, 1892 in a log cabin in Long Creek, North Carolina.

Minnie’s mother, Ella Jones, was 14 years old when she gave birth to Minnie. AContinue reading “Minnie Evans: Far from traditional”

An older woman looks up and out to the right. A wide brimmed sun hat shades her face and covers her white hair. Her clothes are very modest. In fact, her jacket is closed with a safety pin.

In doing the research for Duncanson, I had so much juicy information, that instead of trying to cram it all into one episode, I decided to really dig in and give you as much as I could, without going down a rabbit hole. So, unlike the other artists on this podcast, I’ve broken Duncanson’s story into three parts. In this one, of course, I’d like to cover his earliest years – Please note, though, that I won’t go too early because there’s not a lot of information on his childhood.

How I could only afford two colors, so I chose black and white? I did a lot of those paintings. Continue reading “Episode 1 Season 1: Your Host is an Artist”
