OCULA -- In the late 1960s, Suzanne Jackson studied art and ballet at San Francisco State University, before touring internationally with a modern dance company and eventually settling in Los Angeles.

There, she met and studied under the influential African American artist Charles White, whose philosophy encouraged her to set up and run Gallery 32 that endorsed the use of art as a vehicle for social activism and gave early shows to David Hammons and Betye Saar.
