Ode to the Happy Negro Hugging the Flag in Robert Colescott's "George Washington Carver Crossing the Delaware"

 
Anaïs Duplan
Anaïs Duplan reads "Ode to the Happy Negro Hugging the Flag in Robert Colescott’s George Washington Carver Crossing the Delaware"

About This Poem

 

"In Robert Colescott's 1975 painting George Washington Carver Crossing the Delaware: Page from an American History Textbook, the famed American inventor is depicted standing at the bow of a rowboat making its way across an intrepid Delaware River. Carver is accompanied by a band of Sambo-esque figures, including one Revolutionary War army general who hugs the American flag with a kind of serenity about his expression. The painting is a response to—or a refusal of—an earlier painting by a German American artist, completed in 1851, showing George Washington and his all-white cadre in the same scene."
—Anaïs Duplan
