Kerream Jones

African American Artist Kerream Jones

Kerream Jones is one of the artists whose work is featured on this page.

Born in 1978 in Reading, PA, he has been painting since his first year of high school.

In addition to being passionate about painting, and travelling around the U.S. being featured in various art shows, Kerream founded Kamarja Art, a publishing and fine art company, in 1999.

His images frequently feature African American people in colours and shapes suggestive of rainbows.

Frank Morrison

African American Artist Frank Morrison

Born in Massachusetts, Frank Morrison grew up in New Jersey. At an early age, he developed a fascination for urban hip-hop culture, including local music, DJs and dancers, parties and graffiti artists.

As a member of the Sugar Hill Gang, Morrison break-danced and body-popped, across the U.S.A. and Europe. At the Louvre in Paris, he discovered visual art for the first time. He then started haunting New York's many museums and art galleries.

Frank Morrison's images are often caricatures that reflect the life and times of Black urban dwellers.

      I kept this up overnight because I needed to think about it, and I'm grateful for that. Sometimes I wish we could have conversations here on Squidoo about thoughtful lenses and issues. I don't know the best way to reflect African American culture positively, but I do think we parents and grandparents must be careful to provide experiences, books and artwork that help our children understand African American culture.

      When my children were little, we lived in a state that had less than 1 percent Black population and a fairly significant Mexican-American population. Television was just beginning to include people of color in sitcoms and dramas, but the world and culture of our small town, on the surface, still appeared mostly WASP or WASP and Mormon.

      I wanted my children to have a more realistic world view, and I wanted to make them aware of the prejudices inherent in a mostly white culture; and to help them to look beyond the surface. I took my children to university cultural events around both Mexican-American and Black cultures. I also took them to Black History Month celebrations, where we were almost invariably, and sadly, the only white people present.

      Likewise, I bought a diverse collection of children's books throughout their childhood and adolescence that included every day stories about every day children in many cultures. One of my oldest daughter's favorite book series was the Ezra Jack Keats's Peter books. Surprisingly today, it is her sister who has bought them for her daughters. I was surprised by that because the Peter books did not seem to be her favorite, though still oft-read, books when she was little.

      In our very small, nearly infinitesimal art collection, I have a few pieces of African art or art made by African-Americans, which give me opportunities to discuss the artists and their culture with the grandchildren, and occasionally with adults.

      Thank you again for a thought-provoking page. I was wondering if you might consider adding information about each calendar in the description section--why you picked this calendar to include in your collection, what it highlights perhaps. That would help me, as a possible consumer, to decide which ones to click through and take a more thorough look.

      Lovely page. Thank you for making it.
