Interview with an artist: Artist Lena J talks about a historic project

Charlotte artist Lena Hopkins-Jackson is a part of history at Johnson C. Smith University. She created a mural of famous black women in Myers Hall, a freshman dorm for female students, the first at the historically black college. Full disclosure, I'm a graduate of JCSU and I lived in Myers my freshman year of college in 1995.
Jackson told me all about the mural and the world of art in Charlotte. Check out my video interview with her below.
