He is a sculptor, author, educator, graphic artist, adjunct professor, historic preservationist and community activist who has done so much in the community. He is also the Founder & Co-director of the “The Dos Amigos/Fair Rosamond Middle Passage Ship Replica Project” which is a proposal to bring the whole story of the Middle Passage to life as only a ship replica can, based on the rare actual surviving design plans of a 19th century brigantine schooner belonging to the era of specifically designed (illegal) slavers, and which had a life on both sides of the law, having been captured and converted to a slaver-catcher in the British Royal Navy.
A true Afronaut, he has spent his amazing life finding, preserving, recording and teaching about the global African experience through art, writing and community work.
