Today, we honor dreams of freedom and equality that civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr. built with the work of Horace Pippin, a self-taught artist and soldier who fought to make the world a freer place. During the First World War, Pippin served in the 15th New York Infantry and as a corporal in the 369th Colored Infantry, which the Germans called the “Hellfighters.” He said that the war “brought out all of the art” in him. Pippin kept illustrated journals of his experiences in the trenches and also produced peaceful scenes like this tranquil family setting found in room 12 of our galleries. Horace Pippin. Supper Time, c. 1940.
