Michele Wallace explains in her essay that in 1981 Tim Rollins decided to combine his own art-making with teaching art to black and Puerto Rican schoolchildren. This led to the founding of K.O.S. [Kids of Survival] and the Art & Knowledge Workshop. This project, involving kids who were "learning disabled" or "emotionally handicapped" produced the collaborative art which was shown in the exhibition. Bookseller Inventory # 22247
