When Faith Ringgold died in April 2024 at the age of 93, articles commemorating her life celebrated her as a remarkable and highly prolific artist. However, there is no substitute for hearing her words and seeing her art, so the Academy shared the video of her illustrated talk from Induction 2017 in which she discussed her life and art with images from nearly 70 years of creativity. The video, “At Work—Faith Ringgold,” is available at YouTube.com.
