The portraits for the Hidden Heritages Series were commissioned by the City of San Jose, Ca in conjunction with San Jose State University, African American History Department professor, Iris Jerke. I was chosen to complete 3 out of 6 paintings for an installation on African American families who settled in the city of San Jose, Ca in the early 1900's. Decendents of the families continue to reside in Ca. The installation was on exhibit at the main lobby of the San Jose City Hall, San Jose, Ca. The McCall family painting was purchased by the Sourisseau Academy.
