The Enduring Spirit Awards are named in honor of the work of Columbia artist Tyrone Geter, who credits his mother as the inspiration for his art. Much of Geter’s work celebrates the relationship between mothers, daughters, and sisters—black women— whose personal and public sacrifices make it possible for their children to advance.
