Here is a woman I had never heard of before, whose art and accomplishments are stunning. Woman and black. Hard to say which created the bigger barrier.
We’re in the midst of rediscovering all these overlooked artists and scientists. Like the ladies featured in the movie “Hidden Figures.” Or the woman who discovered dark matter. Or the assistant to Edwin Hubble. (See, their names don’t even pop into my consciousness without looking them up.)
It is a loss to all of us when genius — wherever it comes from — is not recognized.
