Birth of an Artist: A Journey of Discovery, Ed Hamilton
Ed Hamilton was raised on a street, in a neighborhood, that no longer exists. But Walnut Street and the now razed black professional district are vibrant and alive in this account of how one skinny black youth became a nationally acclaimed sculptor. This autobiography chronicles not just one man, but a way of life. It is filled with photos of art work now located all over the U.S., in private homes, public plazas, and prestigious museums.
