Men with Flowers

In honour of Philando Castile, I'm starting a new series called Men With Flowers. These men will all be men of colour. Some of them will have birds accompanying them. My hope is for folks to display these sweet portraits prominently in their homes, welcoming visitors and living with occupants in such a way as to challenge hundreds of years of conditioning that tells us black men are to be feared.  Sales will go to Afro-American Music Institute in Pittsburgh, PA.
