Good old fashioned hard work has paid off for a Houston photographer.
Texas Southern University photographer Earlie Hudnell has been notified his art work will be part of an exhibit in the Smithsonian.
That is a huge accomplishment by any standard.
Hudnell is one of 43 people chosen from around the country to display their work during the African American Art in the 20th Century exhibit.
The display which will include Hudnell’s photos begins this Friday.
