Woodrow Wilson was the second of five children born in Roxbury, Massachusetts after his parents emigrated from British Guiana. Wilsons most famous statue, a three-foot bust of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. stands in the Capitol Rotunda in Washington, D.C. Inspired by the social realism of Mexican muralists such as Jose Clemente, Diego Rivera, and David Alfara Siqueiros, Wilson’s work became more overtly political. In Mother with Child, Wilson captures a black mother’s fear and fierce determination to protect her child from the violent racial injustices playing out at that time.
