Biographical Sketch: Beverly Buchanan
Beverly Buchanan was born in 1940 in Fuquay, North Carolina. She grew up on the campus of South Carolina State College in Orangeburg, South Carolina, at that time the only state-supported school for blacks, where her father was dean of the School of Agriculture. When she was seven or eight years old, the daughter of the School's first black president asked if she could borrow some twenty drawings of Beverly's. Soon after she took Beverly to the YWCA building, and there was her work, hanging in an exhibition for university women. She first became interested in shacks as subject matter traveling in rural South Carolina with her father.
