My Black History Month Journey of Celebrating Women in the Arts: Day 8 - Alma Woodsey Thomas

  • What can I learn from her?  Never say never.  Ms. Thomas really embraced her career as a painter at age 68, after a long career as a teacher. 
  • What do I admire most about her? I appreciate that she always pursued art:   promoting arts in the community - particularly with youth, engaging in networks of artists, and always training so that her own skills could be honed and sharpened. 
  • What would I ask her?  There aren't many women artists that are noted in the Harlem Renaissance.  Who would you say was at the forefront of the visual arts at that time?
