Alma Thomas.

Known for her exuberantly colorful canvases filled with abstract shapes and patterns, Alma W. Thomas had her first one-woman show at the age of 68, after retiring from a thirty-five year teaching career. She accomplished many ‘firsts’ in her lifetime: in 1924, she was the first graduate of the Fine Art Department of Howard University; in 1934, the first African-American woman to gain a Master’s degree in art from Columbia University; [1] In 1972, at the age of 80, Alma Woodsey Thomas became the first African American woman to be granted a solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
