Artist description: "Brother Keep Your Head Up” envisions resistance to achieve American assimilation. He does not seek the acceptance of the masses, they do not love him. He refuses to reside in the white imagination, he will not drown in white thought or fright. His hair is a weapon of force, skin black, weathered, thick, and strong enough to penetrate the stratosphere as he travels back and forth between two worlds. His hair is it’s own autonomous creative reality and the masses gawk, envy, and some swoon. Keep your head up brother, I love you."
