Chronologies and Documents: Faith Ringgold--National Visionary Leadership Project


Faith Ringgold and Momma Jones (Willi Posey) at 345 West 145th Street in front of one of her murals with dolls for which MJ provided clothing, 1981.


This is the project of interviewing all of the great elders of the African American community, which Camille Cosby has been working on for quite a few years now.  It has had several incarnations on the web but the current one (at a glance) would seem to be the most impressive and accessible.  In any case, there is a lovely page devoted to interviews and other kinds of resources on Ringgold, the Kid (or my Mom, in other words) at http://www.visionaryproject.org/ringgoldfaith.

P.S. There's some really juicy stuff about my sister Barbara and I--hint, hint!
