Blackbird






Blackbird by Wendy Aspinall 

 

Mixed media assemblage stretched canvas.

 

In the 1960’s Paul McCartney wrote the lyrics to this beautiful song, Blackbird.

Up until a few years ago it was just that, a nice song to me. I didn’t know the story that inspired Paul McCartney to put pen to paper. 

He has told the story many times after watching a news story in the UK about a group of nine African-American women who had to fight to go to a segregated high school.  

He and his fellow band members cared passionately about the civil rights movement. 

 



Now some 50 years later many of my fellow artistic friends care passionately about the civil rights movement. 

 

I can’t write a hit song but I can make a piece of art that I hope will get you thinking, talking and doing your bit to make this a better place for all the citizens of this beautiful country.
