Raised in a strict religious home where here artwork was frowned upon, Augusta Savage landed in Harlem in 1921.

In her later years, Savage used her talent to teach others. One of her students was the great American painter Jacob Lawrence. This poster is a great way to introduce students to August Savage, a groundbreaking American woman artist.
