Beside Every Great Man is a depiction of three very familiar Civil Rights Leaders, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X and Medgar Evers.  They're in black and white, while their wives are in color, because this painting is actually about the wives.  We can only imagine the day-to-day sacrifices that they had to make in order for their husbands to effectively and efficiently fight for equal rights.  You know the old saying "Behind every great man is a great woman"?  Well, I beg to differ... I say, "Beside" every great man is a phenomenal woman. I salute Mrs. Coretta Scott King, Mrs. Betty Shabazz and Mrs. Myrlie Evers.  They made the ultimate sacrifice and gave the one they loved to the world. 

The Original, 20" x 60" oil on canvas is available for purchase.  If you're interested in the original, message Hodges Fine Art by clicking "contact" above to leave a message.
