Did you enjoy this project? Yes, because it allowed me to present part of U.S. history in an untraditional format.

About: My artwork is about the transition from slavery into schools over time. On the left, the cotton field represents the beginnings of the United States and its roots in slavery, the road on the right provides a transition that represents time progressing to reach the school in the distance. The school is Little Rock Central High School, a major turning point in American educational history.
