Leroy Campbell (artist) "One of my greatest influences came from artist Jacob Lawrence. I found his work... intriguing, & thoroughly appreciated the Story-Telling Aspects of his art... During my childhood, I listened to the stories my elders shared, & learned about its importance in African American culture. I was inspired to find a way to incorporate what I learned into my art." http://tomjoynerfoundation.org/
