In this thesis, I seek to investigate various elements that the works of Faith
Ringgo ld (b 1930) and Kara Walker (b 1969) have in common as well as explore the
differences. My method is to begin with an examination of the work of Ringgold on its
own and follow with an analy sis of the work of Walker. While dealing with Walker, I
continue an examination of Ringgold so that the work of both artist s and the connections
and differences between the two become clearer.
