Her talent and courage culminated in her World’s Fair masterpiece, “The Harp”. Featuring her classic academic precision along with a refreshing quasi abstracting element - “The Harp” was and remains a piece like non other. Her monument extended to teaching the future African American Artists like Jacob Lawrence.
