About Hope ‘65
This is an artwork that deals with the 100 year or century worth of struggle it took for African Americans to get their civil and human rights officially acknowledged and enforced by the U.S.A. as articulated by the passage of both The 13th Amendment of 1865 (which prohibits slavery and involuntary servitude) and The Voting Rights Act of 1965 (which makes it illegal to discriminate against African Americans in voting) respectfully. In both cases a civil war as well as civil disobedience had to be waged to make these changes happen as witnessed by history through The American Civil War of the 1860s and The American Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. The old woman represents the collectively resilient and indomitable spirit of millions of enslaved Africans held in bondage for several generations in America while the baby represents the new hope or potential for generations of free African Americans to hopefully come, a freedom truly earned through blood, sweat and tears.
