Elizabeth Catlett and Charles White, who were married between 1941 and 1946, traveled together to Mexico City, where they each worked at Taller de Gráfica Popular, a collective supporting the making of graphic art in the service of social causes. Catlett, the first African American to receive her Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Iowa, remained in Mexico for most of her career, while Charles White became a celebrated teacher and mentor at the Otis institute in Los Angeles to a new generation of artists including David Hammons and Kerry James Marshall.
