Leave No Child Behind

$ 25.00 USD

There were times when I was creating this picture that I could not stop myself from crying. It was almost as if I were there on that slave ship when children were being tossed overboard. What I felt when I worked on this picture must be the post traumatic stress passed down from generation through generation that experienced the terror of being on a slave ship and losing children. As an African American Illustrator I depict my people determined to save our children. I chose not to illustrate the oppressor. In the most positive way that I can I attempt to capture only the spirit of parents and grandparents, aunts & uncles, brother and sister determined to Leave No Child Behind!-
