Sunnu Rebecca Choi – Black History

Sunnu illustrates three prominent African American figures, part of a ‘Redrawing Black History’ project.

Edmonia Lewis was the first African-American and Native American sculptor to achieve national and then international prominence. Her work is known for incorporating themes relating to Black people and indigenous peoples of Americas into Neoclassical-style sculpture.

Gwendolyn Bennett was an American artist, writer and journalist. Bennett was a dedicated and self-preserving woman, respectfully known for being a strong influencer of African-American women’s rights during the Harlem Renaissance.

Elizabeth Catlett was an African American sculptor and printmaker best known for her depictions of the Black-American experience in the 20th century, which often focused on the female experience.
