Ebony magazine established itself as a great supporter and admirer of Charles White and he had been included in "Leading Negro Artists” Ebony magazine, Volume XVIII, No. 11 September 1963, 131 - 140. Some four or so years later, this particular issue of the magazine included a major eight page feature on the artist. White's book, Images of Dignity had recently been published by Ward Ritchie, and it was this important book that Louie Robinson, the writer of this Ebony magazine feature, used, to introduce his text: "The publication of [White’s] Images of Dignity alone is a singular achievement. No other living Negro artist has ever had a book of his works published (a collection of the art of the late Horace Pippin appeared in print after his death)."
Over its eight pages, Robinson offered a substantial appraisal of White's life and art, and the feature included many reproductions of White's drawings, a detail of one of his murals, the artist in his studio, in the classroom, relaxing with friends, and so on. Extract from the text as follows: "White feels that white Americans can eventually relate to this universality even though it be depicted through black images, just as he has been able to relate to white symbols of universality, "like the Statue of Liberty." Says he: When I do a mother and child, it's a mother and child. it's got to be the personification of all I see in mother and child. White feels that the universality he seeks to project is still better understood among Europeans than among white Americans." (30)
