Lockhart’s story is a story of a young man from the streets of St. Louis whose mother was a brilliant artist who faced the discrimination of a time when African-American designers weren’t welcome in many industries. Yet, despite the barriers of racial resistance that impeded her from succeeding in design, she always encouraged Lockhart to be the best artist he could be. She’s celebrated him in every stage of his career from the moments he was bringing home art to be hung on the kitchen’s refrigerator to him becoming an African-American designer recognized on a global stage.
