I just finished watching “Colors of Character” for this review. Before watching, I knew it was about an artist. I felt perfect for this opportunity and could relate. Going into watching it, I assumed I would learn something more about art-making from a fellow creative. I was so wrong. “Colors of Character” was so much more.
Learning about civil rights and more about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was so interesting and unexpected. I finished the documentary just as my teenage daughter walked into the house. I asked if she had time to watch and I watched it again with her. The documentary was a series of wows that continued to build throughout the viewing. We discussed the documentary and felt there were four different discussion points: 1. Steve Skipper’s life 2. Religion 3. Skipper’s Paintings and 4. Civil Rights. One takeaway was Skipper’s statement that he credited the success of the Civil Rights Movement to all the different ethnicities that supported the cause. Without them, he felt the movement would have failed.
Steve Skipper is one of the most prolific artists in the realms of sports, civil-rights, equestrian, portraiture, and Christian artwork. Skipper has shattered barriers of race and education in the art world. His works are on permanent display in some of the most hallowed halls in America, including the Pro Football Hall of Fame, College Football Hall of Fame, International Sports Halls of Fame, the Lyndon B Johnson Presidential Library and Museum, and has been honored with unveilings at Chelsea Piers in NYC, the MGM Grand and Monte Carlo in Las Vegas, and Millennium Gate Museum in Atlanta.
With no formal training, Skipper openly gives credit to Jesus Christ for his gifts and for every opportunity that he has been given. As an ex-gang member and drug addict, Skipper was transformed into an internationally respected artist.
