George 8x Stewart African Woman Holding a Bow African American Muslim Artist Poster Signed in Plate

George 8x Stewart an African American Muslim artist who spent the majority of his time in Washington DC. He was arrested and placed in prison for  drugs, his addiction forced him to spend many years of his life incarcerated and not treated, a all too common practice of the United States! 
After his release he devoted his attentions to drawing, which he learned he had a natural talent for while in prison, very fortunate he did see his potential and self worth, his art of realism and protest subject has made a body of work that is impressive and inspirational as well as a piece of American History. 
His subject was mostly protest figures and role models for the time as well as himself, his art is a reflection of the times and of a journey many African Americans took as times were changing but not always for the better. Oppression and persecution of many young men and women was a horror that many people dont want to remember.
