Wadsworth A. Jarrell (American, born 1929). Revolutionary (Angela Davis), 1971.
Revolutionary (Angela Davis) by Wadsworth A. Jarrell is in our collection, and featured in our exhibition Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power. In 1968, Wadsworth Jarrell co-founded COBRA (Coalition of Black Revolutionary Artists) with his spouse, fashion designer Jae Jarrell, and artists Barbara Jones-Hogu, Jeff Donaldson, and Gerald Williams. Not only did women play central roles in the prominent Black Arts Movement collective—which would later be renamed AfriCOBRA (African Commune of Bad Relevant Artists)—but they were also iconic leaders in the Black Power Movement. Here Jarrell celebrates the renowned radical activist and intellectual Angela Y. Davis, who continues to be a leader in the fight for racial, gender, and economic justice around the world. Incorporating Davis’s words, Black Power slogans, and AfriCOBRA’s signature vibrant colors, the portrait depicts the intensity and power of her activism.
