Honoring Martin Luther King, Painting, and Writing.

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his holiday in the U.S., I’ve added paintings I did of ’60s & ’70s American  heroes to my gallery. Most all of these heroes were assertive, yet nonviolent, agents for change and justice. The possible exception is Dag Hammarskjold whose United Nations peacekeepers around the world had to defend themselves, sadly, with armed force on occasion.

I painted these and other works at an artists’ commune in a warehouse, which is featured in the book I’m writing, Privileged Killers—a criminologist loses faith in American justice. See here for more about the book.

Please leave comments about these or other artworks here  or below. Thanks!
