Barkley Hendricks (1945-2017)

"Barkley was the real deal. Born of the ghetto, he recorded the images and lives of its inhabitants with honor and glory. The shame and pain of being marginalized by American Apartheid did not defeat his subjects. In spite of the slings and arrows of disrepute they rose like a Phoenix from the ashes of slavery to walk the streets with a pimps swagger and glide in their stride, a power in their loins inherited from the spirit of the African warrior never defeated, never apologetic for being black and Cool. Barkley was cool and courageous. It is time to stand tall. It is time to be a hero like Barkley was." Curlee Raven Holton - Black Artist.
