While visiting my mother in the early 90’s I noticed a closet full of church crowns. I asked her if I could borrow some of them for a painting I wanted to create. This is what I came up with, unfortunately she passed away before I finished. I think she would have approved as well as enjoyed this piece.
As a child I remember visiting my grandmother in Louisiana. I watched her work on one of the beautiful quilts she used to create. As an adult I watched my mother do the same. I have two quilts from my grandma and four from my mother. I cherish them like gold.

In the year 2627, President Quincee Abayomi descended from PSS1 (the presidential space station) to address the WC09 (world council of 9, the existing superpowers) in celebration of the 400th year anniversary of The Great African American Revolution of 2227 that eventually changed the world's laws, structures, and values.
The Chicago uprising of 2225 started the revolution after more than 300 African American men were slaughtered by US government officials disguised as rival gang members in an attempt to self-destruct the black community. To the pendulum swing of the 24th century of the constitution and the acceleration of science and medicine from the descendants of those same brave African Americans that all agreed as a collective that economic power and not weapons would be the key to the absolute freedom! Maybe this will be a movie one day.
