I was one of a team of experts in programed instruction whose purpose was to prepare literacy materials and methods for teaching basic verbal and vocational skills. The materials developed in this project were aimed at adult illiterate Blacks. To develop and test the materials it was necessary to center the activities in the South so that a sample of the target population could be used throughout the project. For this reason the project had its headquarters at Tougaloo College in Tougaloo, Mississippi. I worked full time on the project since the use of visual materials is of particular importance in working with illiterates.

Prior to the SNCC Mississippi Project, I produced voter registration graphics for the New York office of the NAACP with Mr. Henry Lee Moon and For SCLC with Jack Hunter O'Dell.

After SNCC I worked as project developer for the Harlem Commonwealth Council, one of the nations very first economic development organizations based in New York City.

I am presently retired and free-lancing as a portrait Painter and web site designer.
