Writers Against Racism: Synthia SAINT JAMES Receives Trumpet Award

She’s absolutely EXTRAORDINARY! Really! 

And so much of Synthia SAINT JAMES’s artwork, you’ve seen. Remember the Cosby Show  A Different World? Synthia’s work was featured! Here’s an addendum to my initial post, per Synthia:

"A HUGE press error is that my art was on the COSBY. But not one was mine. Most of the art was Varnette Honeywood’s. I had art on A Different World and about 7 other shows."

Recently, "Ms. SAINT JAMES was the first painter to receive the prestigious Trumpet Award, on January 30, 2010 at the 18th Annual Awards Ceremony, which will be televised in April in eighteen countries."

A dynamic speaker, author, and painter, Synthia is certainly an unsung heroine.

Kudos, Synthia!
