Summer’s officially here. Backyard BBQs, car shows, and school yard hoops duels providing the sights and social engagements. 1991 found Fresh Prince hustling to the mall for a new short set. Twenty years later, Stalley grabs the keys to a freshly buffed ’72 Caprice, rounds up the Blue Collar Gang, and provides a new soundtrack to the American Summer. Production handled by Rashad.
About the Art: Palmer Hayden, Midsummer Night in Harlem (1938). Born in 1890, Hayden received the prestigious Harmon Foundation Prize in 1926 facilitating several years study and training in Paris. He returned to the United States in 1932, finding steady work with the U.S. Treasury Art Project and the Works Progress Administration. Hayden portrayed the African American experience, both rural and urban, painting within that narrative the ups and downs of American life. – Stalley
