Woman on a Bridge of 5: Tar Beach (1988) is inspired by hot summer nights as a child, lying on a Harlem rooftop, and became the basis for Ringgold’s first children’s book.

Faith Ringgold, For the Woman’s House, 1971. In 1971, Ringgold took up a residency of her own design at Rikers Island. For several months, she interviewed women incarcerated in the Women’s House of Detention. She asked inmates what they hoped to see in the site-specific painting that she would create for the space. Many of them voiced the opinion that they wanted to be able to see women being things in the world other than some of the things they had gotten arrested for, she recalled.
