Augusta Savage

Sculptor of the Harlem Renaissance

Series: Celebrating Black Artists

By Charlotte Etinde-Crompton and Samuel Willard Crompton

Augusta Savage endured more, far more, than her fair share of sorrow and difficulty. She lost three husbands, one child, and many friends. So it isn't surprising that she sometimes fell into bitterness and despair, but she usually found a remedy for the pain: using her strong fingers to shape works of art. This volume treats Savage as a complex and difficult person who nonetheless wins our admiration. In addition to a comprehensive narrative, readers will discover Savage through her own words, from letters and magazine interviews, revealing this woman as she was: dogged, inspired, and relentless.
