Augusta Savage (Feb 29, 1892 – March 26, 1962) was an African-American sculptor associated with the Harlem Renaissance. She was also a teacher and her studio was important to the careers of a rising generation of artists who would become nationally known. She worked for equal rights for African Americans in the arts.
One of the most influential women of our time. I am a huge fan of Maya Angelou's literary work and her vision for our future. Maya Angelou in her time with us accomplished feats some would only dream of. She is and will always be a phenomenal woman.
