About the Artist

James Brown, Jr. was born in Harlem in 1939. He traveled annually to his family farm in Florida, located in an African village hidden away in the Ocala forest. The land was part of the homestead of his great-grandfather, an African who had escaped from slavery in South Carolina. In 1958, Brown’s art education began at the Art Students League, and for the following ten years he attended the School of Visual Arts. In 1984, Brown received a BFA from the University of South Florida, and in 1987 he earned an MFA from Howard University.
