Medium: oil on archival canvas wrap
Size: 24″ x 48″
On the left of the canvas, I have juxtaposed the two strong Black Women to be in front of the “Rebel Flag” which represented injustice for black people. On the flag are cotton bolls and shackles, symbols of the oppression and forced labor of our people. On the right and seeming to come out of the flag as if in a dream I have drawn a chain of slaves being driven to market. As you gaze at this canvas you see the story from Africa to the American South and from there the struggle for freedom and justice led by Harriet Tubman and Sojourner Truth.
