A message from Barbara Brandon-Croft
I have made it my job, my duty, my calling to keep my dad’s legacy alive. He was an incredible artist…and ridiculously prolific. The lion share of his work was firmly planted in the struggle for civil rights.
I’ve team up with researcher and scholar Tara Nakashima Donahue to pull together a collection of his works and artifacts which, starting May 7th, will be on view at Medialia Gallery on West 38th Street.
We’re calling the show, “CULLUD” named after a board game my dad created in 1967 (where no matter how long you play, you will never win). Included in the show will be a number of pieces that my dad contributed to Freedomways (the black cultural and political journal of it’s time), original panels from Luther, and a lot more.
The show will also include originals of my work on, “Where I’m Coming From," from my 13-year stint as a cartoonist.
My dad and I make the only father/daughter nationally syndicated cartoonists duo. We not only had separate comic strips, we had different syndicates, and they ran some twenty years apart. I'm most proud of the fact that we covered many the same topics — in our own distinct styles and from our own perspectives.
We hope you will come and enjoy the show.
