I created Still I Rise in 1984 based on a poem by the famed writer, Maya Angelou. Still I Rise is a social commentary on the trials and triumps of African American History. In 2014 I was invited by the City of San Jose to be the featured artist at the African American Flag Raising, at that time I decided to add to the collage by adding the image of President Obama and the first family.

Still I Rise is currently on display at the Triton Museum of Art in the Metamorphosis exhibit until March 29th, 2015

Prints of Still I Rise are available in my Zazzle store.
