I’m in awe of Kadir Nelson. His paintings hang at the U.S. House of Representatives and The National Baseball Hall of Fame and in the collections of Steven Spielburg, Will Smith, Denzel Washington and Queen LaTifah. He’s exhibited in galleries and museums in Detroit, New York, Washington D.C., England, Mexico and Japan and graced the sets of Fresh Prince of Bel Aire and Beauty Shop as well as other television shows and movies. He won two Coretta Scott King Awards and a Caldecott Honor.
