Little is known about Meaux, who was born Ronald Moore. We do know that he was an art teacher in Cleveland , OH. It is unknown if he ever exhibited or sold his work. Meaux’s circumstance was especially problematic: he was a gay black man, a serious and talented artist, living in a Midwestern city in 1960′s America.
