William Edmondson (1874 - 1951) was an African-American folk art sculptor. In 1937 Edmondson was the first African-American artist to be given a one-person show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

William Edmondson was born in 1874 in Davidson County, Tennessee. He did not know the exact year of his birth because of a fire that destroyed the family Bible. Recent research into census records indicates that he was born in December, 1874. He was one of six children of freed (showing 500 of 8644 characters).
