I believe in being an artist as a way of life; my intention is serious, and I'm ready to challenge anyone who says what I do isn't.~Faith Ringgold

Her work was significantly impacted by her political and social activities during the 1960s. Influenced by several black authors and artists including Romare Bearden and Jacob Lawrence. In 1971 she received a grant to paint oa mural at the prison for women on Riker's Island.
