More About the Author

Aisha Lumumba was born in Georgia in a rural suburb of Atlanta, known as McDonough, in the mid 1950's. She now lives in Atlanta, and has a passion for many artistic mediums. Ms. Lumumba's interest in art started at a very early age. Ms. Lumumba was a high achiever as she matriculated through the Henry County school system. She attended Georgia State University, "only to become a mediocre art major" in her words.
Ms. Lumumba states, "As a young child I saw very few positive images of myself and others that looked like me in media (print or visual)." As things changed in the world, ans as pictures of African Americans came to the media, the pictures were more often than not degrading pictures. Ms. Lumumba set out to create self-affirming positive images of her people and their lives through her art. She has installed Quilt Exhibits in many places, namely 5 consecutive years at The Atrium on Auburn Art Gallery Atlanta, Georgia; Birmingham Public Library Art Gallery Birmingham, Alabama; and the National Black Arts Festival Atlanta, Georgia. She has also exhibited in many quilt and art shows throughout the country: California, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, and of course Georgia. Ms. Lumumba is a very prolific, full-time artist.
