“The Lesson” is a watercolor inspired by the great black ballerina
Misty Copeland. This image shows a ballerina in “the hood”
demonstrating dance moves to impressionable young girls. The
dignity and joy starkly contrast with the sometimes harsh realities experienced by young people in disadvantaged communities. The real lesson is that hope, love, and discipline can overcome the disparities and injustices of life.
