Flo is unique in her mission and singularly devoted and true to what she believes. She uses her art to convey this message and is undaunted, unafraid to plunge forward. Even though she was born in Pau, in the south of France, and had no formal education in black American history, she feels absolutely compelled to alert the WORLD that the Black Woman is to be respected, exalted, and given her rightful place in the universe.
