Moment of Prayer: Martin and Malcomb:

This work is another in the series of pieces I’ve done on Black history. It depicts Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcomb-X, two of my favorite people of the Civil Rights Movement. Despite having different religious faiths, ideas, and strategies, they both shared the same love, devotion, and tragic fate for their people and cause. This painting attempts to convey the seriousness of that moment, the fear they both must have felt in the moments leading up to their deaths, and the strength and courage they sought and found through their faiths.
