Jens Robinson, President of Cartoon Arts International believes that OUR ROOTS “deserves recognition for its unique contribution, through art and journalism, to racial understanding.”
And in the same light this Black History Month, OUR ROOTS on EURWEB.COM focuses on Cynthia Robinson, a founding member and Trumpeter of Sly and the Family Stone and the other, Raven Chanticleer, founder of an African-American Wax and History Museum inspired by Madam Tussaud’s Wax museum.
My intention to produce this educational feature regularly is to educate, entertain and inform and also to inspire the youths of colour, aspiring artists and the enthused to draw. Difficult to explain but there is this great satisfaction that comes with being a visual communicator.
