Alma Woodsey Thomas

Painter and Educator

Series: Celebrating Black Artists

By Charlotte Etinde-Crompton and Samuel Willard Crompton

Born in Georgia at the end of the nineteenth century, Alma Woodsey Thomas defied society's expectations for black women. She did not marry, have children, or work as a domestic. Instead, Thomas was a teacher and an artist. Fascinated by nature and the universe, she could paint vivid scenes of everything from the trees in her yard to NASA's first moon landing. Readers will learn that she wouldn't win public acclaim for her art until later in life. Facing health problems and old age, Thomas managed to become one of the country's most influential artists.
