Peter Williams received his BFA from Minneapolis College of Art and Design and his MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art. He is a professor of art at the University of Delaware. The N-Word: Paintings by Peter Williams (Rotland Press: Detroit, 2016) is a timely monograph of recent and compelling work by Williams, that caustically confronts the recent attacks, killings, and murder of Black people by police across the United States. The book contains an introduction to Williams' work, an in-depth conversation between he and acclaimed playwright, poet, critic and novelist Bill Harris, and an original short story by author Lynn Crawford inspired by Williams' urgent vision.
