Edmunds was born in Philadelphia and studied at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art. He founded the Brandywine Workshop and Archives in 1972, which continues the great tradition of printmaking and artistic experimentation that has distinguished the Philadelphia arts community. Brandywine is a major source of opportunity for artists of all ages and backgrounds, especially artists of color, and is recognized internationally for its high standards of excellence and innovation.

Edmunds’ lithograph, 200 Yrs, celebrates the progression of African Americans in America. The outline of a slave ship in the lower left alludes to the Slave Act of 1808, which marked early efforts to abolish the slave trade in the U.S. On the lower right a portrait of Martin Luther King Jr. represents the fight towards civil equality for African Americans. Edmunds’ print is dated 2008, the 200th anniversary of the Slave Act, and celebrates a new era in American history, with the election of Barack Obama as the first black president of the U.S. The print also features the names of African American heroes, slaves, soldiers, abolitionists, civil rights leaders, politicians, and educators, including Harriet Tubman, Booker T. Washington and Fredrick Douglass.
