“I never went to an art school. I failed the art courses that I did take in school. I just looked at a lot of things. And that’s how I learnt about art, by looking at it.    ”

3/16/1964- New York, NY: New York City boycott leaders Representative Adam Clayton Powell, D-NY., Reverend Milton A. Galamison and Malcolm X are shown at Siloam Presbyterian Church in Brooklyn before the March 16 boycott of city public schools. The protest against segregation was only half as effective as the earlier one on Feb. 3 (267,545 pupils took part, compared with 464,362 last time), but leaders called it a success considering its lack of support from major Civil Rights groups which helped sponsor the first one.
