While enjoying the calm and relaxing view at the lake in Piedmont Park in Mid Town, Atlanta, Georgia, the thought came to me that at one time my people were not allowed into the park to enjoy this view simply because of the color of their skin. Slave labor was used to create some of the most beautiful and serene views in and around Atlanta. This painting shows the beauty of the lake but hidden under it are the soles of Black children hidden and unrecognized in history for what their parents built.
