His works are included in public collections in the USA and abroad in such places as The Smithsonian Institute, Washington, D.C.; Howard University, Washington, D.C.; The Studio Museum in Harlem, NY; Ghana National Museum, Ghana; Columbia Museum, Columbia, SC; and in private collections including David Dinkins, Former Mayor of NYC; Hon.
