Born of middle-class means in Philadelphia, Mae Howard Jackson was influential in American sculpture and African American artistic pedagogy. She was mentored by pioneering African American sculptor Meta Warrick Fuller, but decided against following Fuller to Paris to continue her studies. Instead, Jackson married, settled in Washington, D.C. and became a mentor and instructor to many other black artists, including James Porter and her husband’s nephew Sargent Johnson.
