Oil on canvas, 2010
Sonia Sanchez is one of my favorite poets.
So I was pretty honored to be asked to do a portrait of her to be a part of “BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez: A Tribute in Word, Music and Dance”.
The tribute featured presentations from Ruby Dee, Talib Kweli, Haki Madhubuti and others.
It was a great event that I was happy to be a part of.
Sonia loved the painting. And I was glad.

And, me and Ruby Dee. Just because.
