David Hammons is an American artist born on July 24, 1943, in Springfield, Illinois, United States. African-American Flag is one of the artist’s best-known works, created in 1990.
The flag delivers a sense of pride and confirms the presence of African-Americans in the United States and that being black and American are one and the same thing.
The colors of the flag; red, black, and green hold significant meanings. They represent blood, skin tone and the life that the ancestors of Black people forced into slavery were made to leave behind. The flag is a strong political statement for the black community.
Hammons was inspired by two contrasting symbols: the U.S flag and the Pan-African flag adopted by the group Universal Negro Improvement Association6 (UNIA) by Marcus Garvey and African Communities League in 1920.
