Sharing is caring!

An amazing man Ed Dwight, the first African American to be trained as an astronaut, designed the Black Patriots Memorial, including the image on the coin’s reverse side of the Black Patriot Commemorative Coin. He had many careers and his passion for capturing the history of African Americans in sculptor reminds me of Issac Scott Hathaway, the designer of theĀ  the Booker T. Washington and Carver Coins.

Ed Dwight, has created more than 55 monuments and memorials honoring African Americans.
