lizabeth Cathlett, an African-American sculptor and printmaker who was one of the 20th century’s most famous American artists, died yesterday at her home in Cuernavaca, Mexico. The Los Angeles Times has an excellent obituary of her. And we found this video of her giving a special message to African-American youth. She says: ”This is the advice I would give to people who are making a lot of money. Do something constructive with it. Not to be rich, not to be famous, not to have 5 wives, not to be important … but to give of themselves.” Watch:
