Maybe there will be an Ebola bucket challenge now.

Gerard Sekoto | Blue Head (Portrait of Miriam Makeba), 1960.
"From 1960, Sekoto started producing a series of busts that he was to revisit and re-work repeatedly until the mid 1970’s. These abstracted heads and portrait studies were primarily of African women and were usually executed in broad strokes using a blue palette. Sekoto explained that he chose to use the dominant blue palette because it was sufficiently strong, and contrasted well with the warmer colours, while also allowing for tonal adjustments when mixed with white in the highlighted areas. Apart from these technical aspects, he also liked the positive and expressive qualities of the strong blues, which contributed to the grace and dignity of these iconic heads with elongated necks."

“I knew that I could never again raise my voice against the violence of the oppressed in the ghettos without having first spoken clearly to the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today – my own government.”
“There is a magnificent new militancy within the Negro community all across this nation. And I welcome this as a marvelous development. The Negro of America is saying he’s determined to be free and he is militant enough to stand up.”
“You can’t talk about solving the economic problem of the Negro without talking about billions of dollars. You can’t talk about ending the slums without first saying profit must be taken out of the slums. You’re really tampering and getting on dangerous ground because you are messing with folk then. You are messing with captains of industry. Now this means that we are treading in difficult water, because it really means that we are saying that something is wrong with capitalism.”
