Get to know the “Circle of Black Artists”: Wendell T. Brooks

Brooks is a generation younger than the other four, but his career overlapped with those of the other artists. He was living and working nine miles away from Princeton in the township of Wwing, a suburb of Trenton, the state capital of New Jersey. Brooks was an expert in printmaking techniques; his prints are in the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, the New Jersey State Museum, and other permanent collections.
