    Artist and art educator Betty LaDuke presents the lives and work of three American women artists of diverse heritagesóLois Mailou Jones, Mine Okubo, and Pablita Velarde. Their expressive paintings, drawings, lithographs and murals reflect their experiences as African-American, Asian-American, and Native American artists. These remarkable womenónow in their seventh, eighth, and ninth decadesódiscuss the political and social obstacles they encountered during their artistic careers, while persevering in the creation of beautiful and vivid images expressing both the pain and beauty of their respective multicultural heritages.
