Malcolm X


The Autobiography of Malcolm X is my favorite book. This civil rights leader's story addresses issues of race, crime, religion, hate, and ultimately transformation. His spiritual journey from a perspective of hatred towards one of love is truly powerful. In this age of intolerance towards Muslims, we can all learn valuable lessons by reading his story.

This portrait was drawn directly on fabric. It measures 16" by 20"


"To have once been a criminal is no disgrace. To remain a criminal is the disgrace."
~ Malcolm X
