A standout young artist in the Detroit area, Senghor Reid began gaining national recognition around 2004 with a major commission from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, and an exhibition of his work at the National Black Arts Show in New York City. Reid grew up in a very creative home, and some of his paintings showed a keen awareness of the heritage of African-American visual arts. Taking a job as a public school art teacher, an often thankless job in a cash-strapped big-city school system, Reid had students lining up to take his classes. "I really consider myself a part of the new generation of teachers that are fighting inside the school system to make change," Reid told Jonathan Cunningham of Detroit's Metro Times. "I was a part of DPS [the Detroit Public Schools], now I'm giving back. I take that very seriously and I want to finish what I start."
