Jacob Lawrence, painter. He is among the best-known 20th-century African-American painters, a distinction shared with Romare Bearden. He was only in his twenties when his "Migration Series" made him nationally famous; the series depicted the Great Migration of hundreds of thousands of African Americans from the rural South to the urban North. He referred to his style as "dynamic cubism", though by his own account the primary influence was not French art, but the shapes & colors of Harlem. R.I.P.
