Marching to a Different Drummer - Robert Colescott, 1989.
Contemporary Art - Acrylic on canvas, 213.4 x 182.9 cm.
In “Marching to a Different Drummer” the figures and props surrounding  the central African-American figure reveal him to be a white-collar  worker who has received his university education on a sports  scholarship. He “marches” with white America, but the pained look on his  face and the ball chained to his foot demonstrate the extent to which  his black heritage is both ever-present and ever-compromised.  Colescott’s work comments on white perceptions of blacks and black  perceptions of whites and of themselves and shows how racism and  self-imposed inferiority define black identity. 
Permanent Collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts.
