Signed by the artist, upper right. This construction on wood features Black men, likely the artist's neighbor's in Overtown, playing basketball. The subject repeatedly appeared in Young's oeuvre, which includes people protesting, Angels, saints, horses, pregnant women and other figures that recorded the struggle of life in the inner city. Young's work is included in over 60 museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, NY and The Philadelphia Museum of Art.
