Generations of Art & Activism

 I got a chance to check out the inaugural show for mixed media artist and activist, George Kilpatrick, Sr. on Saturday. The show, held at the Community Folk Art Center (CFAC), was attended by community members, artists, as well as the Kilpatrick family. 

Media personality George Kilpatrick, Jr. opened the show by reading a poem his dad wrote called “The Artist.”  George’s sister Sherri Kilpatrick Duchenne also told a story about how her dad taught the family to harness the  power of the pen.

George Kilpatrick, III, a student studying at Howard Unviersity, representing third generation of the family, sang a soulful rendition of “Yesterday,” which reminded me a lot of the Donny Hathaway version.
