Revolutionary by Wadsworth Jarrell is an acrylic piece that is apart of a mixed media collection. The painting showcases Jarrell’s vibrant “Kool-aid” style on political activist and professor Angela Davis. During this time Davis was on the run with a warrant out for her arrest, it was in connection to the death of a prison guard. She was later found not guilty after being tried in 1972. In a time where people of color were fighting for their voice, she used hers and the painting captures that.
