Tampa Red, 1904-1981, was an influential Chicago blues guitarist/singer-songwriter. He played a golden national steel guitar with a slide. Sometimes he played pop music and also developed a bawdy and humorous type of blues called Hokum. His style of music is a bridge between traditional rural blues and the urban electric.

Of Poetry & Protest at Shakespeare and Company, Paris France

Pleased to find a book I helped design and illustrate titled "Of Poetry & Protest" at Shakespeare & Company bookstore located in the heart of Paris. Shakespeare and Co is an English-language bookshop located in historic Paris in a former monastery. In the spirit of Sylvia Beach's original Shakespeare & Co, George Whitman opened his shop in 1951 to be a “socialist utopia masquerading as a bookstore". This store would soon influence Lawrence Ferlinghetti to open City Lights Books in San Francisco, 1953.

Of Poetry & Protest features 43 contemporary African-American poets.
