A conversation with artist Samuel Levi Jones. Jones’ work addresses the lack of African American representation in a variety of historical texts by deconstructing and reconstructing such books into large-scale canvases. In addition to painting and sculpture, Jones has been working to create a space for reconciliation, unity, and cross-cultural understanding in his childhood hometown of Marion, Indiana which is still dealing with the impact of a lynching which occurred over 90 years ago.
