Such were the successes of Pomegranate's 2019 and 2020 Charles White calendars, that it was perhaps no surprise when a Charles White 2021 calendar was issued. (The popularity of the calendars was likely aided by the marked acceleration in appreciation of Charles White, largely on account of the major touring exhibition of his work, and the universal adulation it accrued.)

Pomegranate's calendar for 2021 bore a striking resemblance to the cover of the catalogue for the Charles White retrospective, featuring as they both did J'Accuse#1, 1965, Private collection.

In chronological order, the plates were:

Awaken from the Unknowing, 1961, Blanton Museum of Art, the University of Texas at Austin

Goodnight Irene, 1952, the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri

Exodus I: Black Moses (Harriet Tubman), 1951, Philadelphia Museum of Art

Headline, 1944, Private collection

Work (Young Worker), 1953, Private collection

I've Been 'Buked and I've Been Scorned, 1956, Blanton Museum of Art, University of Texas at Austin

J'Accuse#1, 1965, Private collection.

Young Farmer, 1953, Private collection

Missouri C, 1972, the Museum of Modern Art, New York

Voice of Jericho (Folksinger), 1958, the Baltimore Museum of Art

J'Accuse#3, 1965, Michael Rosenfeld Gallery, New York

J'Accuse#5, 1965, Michael Rosenfeld Gallery

This was a wonderful selection of Charles White's work, with some pieces having a greater familiarity than others
