Printer Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. Addresses Civil Rights In New Exhibition

Posted on:

While dressed in his signature blue jean overalls, pink dress shirt and brown cowboy boots, Detroit-based printer Amos Paul Kennedy Jr. engaged his Ohio University Kennedy Museum of Art gallery audience by taking them behind the curtain of his Lyrics of My People exhibition.

Among the items he discussed during his one-hour talk on Sept. 19 were the origins of his career, little-known facts about the Black Civil Rights Movement and the motives behind his beautiful, thought-provoking prints.
