Execution Date
"We must make works that use our lives and feelings as their basis for existence. The work can either take the form of giving and using ideas, subjects, and symbols for radical change, or the works can be of such large physical scale, and in the right places, as to make real change." The artist, quoted in "Notes on Black Art" in Melvin Edwards: Sculptor, 1978
