Oil on Canvas

The Civil Rights Act was passed in 1966 guaranteeing Black Americans the rights which the outcome of The Civil War was supposed to have insured a mere 100 years earlier.
Three years later, in 1969, Jimi Hendrix took the music world by storm. Hendrix not only revolutionized the rock 'n' roll macrocosm but he instilled in American culture a new outlook on race relations. As is so often the case, art transcends all color barriers. Hendrix did not have to scale the walls of resistance toward racial equality, he merely floated over them.
Art, in every form, has done more to promote human equality than any other political movement.
