Howard Finster (1916-2001). Exhaustive biographies are available online about the Reverend Howard Finster. I have a several hours of video of Howard talking, preaching, and playing the banjo. I visited him at Paradise Gardens in Summerville, Georgia about eight times and met him another six times at various art events in Atlanta. Each time at departure I told him how much I loved him and he always said, “Yeah. If we all did more lovin’ the world would be a better place”.
