...When I got my degree, I was appalled at the brief coverage of "Black Art" and the Black Art Movement. The School that I went to is Internationally Based, but they are decidedly European in their orientation.

We lost that risk taking nerve and everybody wants credit and to get paid for whatever goes down.
Meanwhile everything of value is draining, the…Continue
