Alvin Hollingsworth rose to fame after giving lectures and painting demonstrations on an NBC East Coast tour and hosting the ten-part series, “You’re Part of Art”. Hollingsworth then illustrated crime comics, such as “Suicide Smith” and “Captain Power”, before stepping back into the spotlight with his own, original comic strips. As a prominent member of the Spiral group, his later work addressed and showed support for the Civil Rights Movement.
