“And then I had the fortune of meeting a very prominent Black artist, Ben Britt, who has about five paintings hanging in Tuskegee Negro Hall of Fame. Liked my work, and I began to study with him. And then with all the energy, you know, that’s when ‘Black is beautiful’ came out. The red, black, and green (African-American flag colors). When Blacks became aware of their heritage.” —Gladys Crampton
