A&T Four Pen on Paper
As an alumni of the illustrious North Carolina A&T State University, and a visual arts major, this is truly a pleasure to commericate the A&T Four using pen on paper. Let me walk you down memory lane on what makes this piece of art so special.
On February 1st, 1960 in Greensboro, North Carolina, four A&T freshmen students, Ezell Blair, Jr. (Jibreel Khazan), Franklin McCain, Joseph McNeil and David Richmond walked downtown and “sat - in” at the whites–only lunch counter at F.W. Woolworth’s store. They refused to leave when denied service and stayed until the store closed. Their brave actions led to the desegregation of the Woolworth's lunch counter in July 1960 and made a significant impact on other events in civil rights history.
This will be the first of a select few in a collection we are naming "Social Justice History in Print".
Our prints are created and printed from Bay Photo using Lustre Paper material. They are then over-laminate the image with a soft Satin Laminate. The resulting product is then wrapped on Gatorboard. For a striking effect, we apply a spacer (Float Mounting Block) to the back of the ThinWrap, which allows the image to be hung and appear to float from the wall.
