“We have evolved into an underground network of guerrilla parenting and survivalist experts.” —Robert A. Pruitt

Meet Otabenga Jones & Associates, one of four commissioned artists for Funk, God, Jazz & Medicine: Black Radical Brooklyn. OJA is a Houston-based artist collective, founded in 2002 by artist and educator Otabenga Jones in collaboration with members Dawolu Jabari Anderson, Jamal Cyrus, Kenya Evans, and Robert A. Pruitt. The group’s pedagogical mission takes a myriad of forms, including actions, writings, DJ sets, and installations. In scope, the organization’s mission is three-fold: to underscore the complications of black representation, to maintain and promote the core principles of the Black radical tradition, and (in the words of the late Russell Tyrone Jones) “teach the truth to the young black youth.”

Keeper of the Golden City from The Guardians series

I believe that I subconsciously paint women a lot because I come from a family of women. I have many aunts and the strongest woman I’ve ever known—my grandmother—raised me. Men were around, but the women have always been my protectors, caretakers, and support system. “The Guardians” are symbolic of those that protect nature, beauty, spirituality, and a myriad of other things—they are the warriors. The paintings are metaphors for the unknown—the mystical and sometimes the literal. - Tamara Natalie Madden
