The world renown artist and illustrator Thomas Blackshear has created a new collection of artwork for 2013 that features historic African American activists, educators, scientists, inventors and authors. Included in this collection are portraits of individuals such as Harriet Tubman, Benjamin Banneker, Booker T. Washington, Charles Drew, Philip Randolph, Ida B. Wells, Mary McLeod Bethune, George Washington Carver, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Jan Matzeliger, Sojourner Truth, and Frederick Douglass.
Each portrait contains the amazing quality, detail and beauty that we have come to expect from Mr. Blackshear. These images are currently available in our 2013 Black History Calendar and our 2013-2014 Two Year Black History Checkbook Planner.
This is the first year that Thomas Blackshear has been the featured artist for this popular calendar and checkbook planner that is produced annualy and used by many to celebrate Black History everyday and to introduce all that may view these products to individuals worthy of being celebrated and remembered.
