« Part 38: John and Thomas Seymour, 18th Century Federal Cabinetmakers Part 39 of Historic Woodworker Videos series Part 40: Historic tribute to a Japanese carpenter »

In the last three months, I have researched and put together a video tribute to another woodworker, the 56th in the series. This video focuses on an African American sculptor in the 1920s named Leslie Garland Bolling. He captured the dignity and beauty of his family and friends in small eight-inch wooden carving. The research pulled me into the Harlem Renaissance – which was a joy and revelation for me.

This video can be found at Hope you enjoy.
