Kadir Nelson

Thursday, January 22, 2015

Kadir Nelson was at the Arts Council tonight signing books and re-introducing himself to the community. Illustrations from Nelson's book WE ARE THE SHIP: The Story of Negro League Baseball appeared in the Arts Council galleries in 2011. Illustrations from six of his other award-winning books are on display in the Arts Council now in the "Words and Pictures" exhibition.
Kadir is seen talking with FSU professor Carole Boston Weatherford, author of the Caldecott Honor Medal recipient children's book Moses: When Harriet Tubman Led Her People to Freedom. The two collaborated on the book.
