The book for the September meeting is “Amazing Grace: The Life of Beauford Delaney” by Davy Leeming (published in 1998). This book tells the life story of a very fine 20th Century artist who was black and includes accounts of his struggles with racism as he sought to make a living as an artist in mid twentieth century America and France. The book features a small number of color reproductions of his paintings and a few photographs of Beauford and his friends.
