9780964744462: Taught by Life, Art and Stories by Roosevelt Lewis, Jr.

Bronze Medal in 2016 Independent Publisher Book Award!!! Art and Stories of Love, War and Redemption. Roosevelt Lewis, painter, sculptor, playwright, poet, humanitarian and author has published a book entitled Taught by Life, Art and Stories. It was as a small boy, in the middle of a cotton field on Cane River in Central Louisiana, after a hard rain I took my hands and shaped the red mud into a three dimensional figure. I have been creating art for over fifty years. The collection of twenty-five years of my paintings and sculptures and the raw stories in this book are accompanied by stories about my life and the people I grew up with on the Cane River in Central Louisiana and their individual struggles to overcome and find a better place in life for themselves and their children. I think this book will be interesting to people looking for personal stories of African American lives in the southern United States, as well as to readers seeking to celebrate the power of art and human resilience.
