For almost 30 years Jo's gallery has given African American Artists a Place to Celebrate

For almost 30 years, Jo's Gallery in Detroit has been a central place for African American artists to showcase their work. Last year, the economic recession and death of owner Joanne Griffin almost closed the doors of the iconic gallery. Today, the business, located on Detroit’s Avenue of Fashion, is owned by Griffin’s daughter, Garnette Archer. She and painter Frank Morrison spoke to WDET's Martina Guzman about black art and the difficulties of finding galleries to display the work of African American Artists.
