This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Portsmouth Virginia, Inge Hardison was raised near Boston and became a sculptor and painter, especially noted for her 'hall of fame' of Black Americans. She created this portrait sculpture gallery, which she called "Negro Giants in History". They are mantle-size busts in response to the omission of Black Americans in the national Hall of Fame in Washington DC. Of her project which included depictions of Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, and Phillis Wheatley, columnist Tony Brown wrote in 1987: "This woman's life has been dedicated to preserving our legacy. . . .She will keep the eternal flame of our struggle alive with her genius". (Reynolds 185).

Hardison was a student at the Art Students League in New York City and of William Zorach. Many of her sculpted pieces are done in wax, clay or plaster and later cast in bronze. She was a teacher at Hunter High School in New York City, and also became a photographer. Along with five male artists, she formed the Black Academy of Arts and Letters.
