I'm joined by Sharif Muhammad who talks about his 20+ year commitment to detailing the black American experience through his digital artwork and teaching. He shares how growing up he couldn't connect in a meaningful way in most of his history classes because the history wasn't reflective of his family experience.

He discusses the types of stories he tells with his art, what he learned about himself and his creative process during the pandemic, and why he creates art with his children in mind and the type of future he envisions for them. His desire to make his art more accessible and affordable to reach more people within his community led to him creating the Black Cards which can be purchased on his website along with his other works: https://www.sharifmuhammad.com/home.
