Even when he resided in France during the later years of his life, he remained connected to his home - America, and the plight of his family and friends fighting for equality.
His relationship with James Baldwin, friendship with Marian Anderson, and a steady stream of newspaper clippings and letters from abroad closed the distance of an ocean and inspired him to paint his Rosa Parks series. Two Woman Sitting on a Park Bench is one of only three paintings in this important series.
