"DR ML KING JR: A Dream Deferred" is a celebration of Dr. King and his vision; a conversation about the past, present, and future, posing the question, “What would Dr. King think of the world today?” Holding a very thoughtful pose, Dr. King looks on as he contemplates his dream of racial and economic equality and the impact of non-violent resistance. This piece was featured on the cover of The New Yorker Magazine in January 2017.

Kadir Nelson

Kadir Nelson began drawing at the age of three, displaying artistic acumen before he could write or spell. “I have always been an artist,” Nelson explains. “It’s part of my DNA.” At age eleven, Kadir Nelson was apprenticed by his uncle Michael Morris, an artist and art instructor. “My uncle gave me my foundation in art,” says the artist. Kadir Nelson experimented with several different media and later began painting in oils at the age of sixteen under the encouragement and tutelage of both his uncle and high school art teacher. He began entering his paintings in art competitions and ultimately won an art scholarship to study at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Upon graduating with honors, Kadir Nelson began his professional career as an artist, publishing his work and receiving commissions from publishers and production studios such as Dreamworks, Sports Illustrated, Coca-Cola, The New York Times and Major League Baseball, among others.
