From the Inside Flap
ords, here is a conversational account of Faith Ringgold's life and work--in an innovative, interactive format. Presented in short sections, such as "Introducing Myself," "Growing Up," and "Being an Artist," the author and illustrator comments on her achievements, how she developed her style, and what some of her works mean to her. Ideal for use in the classroom or at home, the book also contains suggestions for activities and projects.
About the Author
Faith Ringgold was born in Harlem, but now divides her time between New Jersey and La Jolla, California. She is a professor of fine art at the University of California at San Diego, where she teaches for half of the year.
An artist of international renown, Faith is best known for her story quilts -- works that combine painting, quilted fabric, and storytelling.
Faiths first book for children, Tar Beach, was a Caldecott Honor Book, a winner of the Coretta Scott King Award for illustration, a Reading Rainbow featured selection, a New York Times Best Illustrated Book, and the recipient of numerous other honors, including a Parents Choice Gold Award.
Faith is married to Burdette Ringgold and has two daughters, Michele and Barbara, and three granddaughters, Faith, Teddy and Martha.

Finally arrived at the category of BVC African American Fine Art only to find that Faith Ringgold, who is also my mother, is not tagged as such (African American Artists). Want to point out that this book herein, Talking to Faith Ringgold, is one of the many on Faith Ringgold who proudly declares herself an African American artist and whose foundation, Any One Can Fly Foundation is devoted to the perpetuation of the canon of African American Fine Art throughout museums and the educational world. For African American Fine Art to be more widely regarded as a true and worthy category (as is our music) might help with a lot of the other issues black children and adults find themselves confronting so far as self-image and self-regard.
