This essay draws on two extended oral histories in comparing and contrasting two African American visual artists based in Greater Pittsburgh, Thaddeus Mosley and Elizabeth Asche Douglas. By probing the artistic and activist careers of both, the essay explores how the interrelated dimensions of their lives and art overlap with the context of African American life in mid-century Pittsburgh.
