This is the second of ten paintings in the 1001 Black Men show at the CIIS Main Building in San Francisco. For this show, I create a series of figures who are composites of many Black men I have thought of and/or imagined. I tried to put together a representative sampling of the forms of Black manhood and masculinity that I have encountered over my many years of drawing African American men.
