ART TODAY 021418 Martin Luther King – Called to Serve (new art) by Synthia SAINT JAMES


“MLK: Called To Serve”  –  Oil & Acrylic on Canvas – 30×24″
The painting is available as Limited Edition Giclees on Canvas in several sizes and prices in Synthia’s “Square Up” Store:

I was so honored when the City of Rocky Mount, NC, the city where Dr. King first gave his “I Have A Dream” speech nine months before he delivered it at the March on Washington, chose me to be the Keynote Speaker for the 30th anniversary of their MLK Unity Breakfast (which was held on Monday, January 15, 2018). I was truly humbled when I received a standing ovation for my presentation.

In preparation of my speech I read the Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr., which inspired the painting “MLK: Called To Serve”.  The painting includes Mahatma Gandhi, because his life and non-violent approach to change so influenced Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement.
