Cleven Goodie Goudeau 1932-2015

Cleven Goodie Goudeau Many people don’t know how much of an Icon
Goodie really is
He’s not gone but just transcends
He transformed this art movement
In a world that is so deep rooted in hate
And gave so many of us
Not only a vision but a platform
And showed us not only how to build but create
I will never forget his words to me
He said “it doesn’t matter what other people say
What do you believe?”
He said “That is the difference between setting goals
And what you can and will achieve.”
All the long hours at the Gallery
And many of us did not know he was in pain
He always asked what he could do to help
And never shed a tear nor complained
So don’t think of him as a was because He Is.
And for that I Thank You.

– Elaine Brown
