Bree Newsome, walking tall and proud after defying the injustice of state sponsored hate. Her actions define American patriotism – a willingness to stand for the mission of the nation even in the face of misled government.
Watercolor and ink pen, this portrait symbolizes the work we must all do to fight injustice in our society. Where symbols of hate are allowed to foster, there remains an imminent threat to the population. The drawing is unfinished, like the efforts we all must take to end hatred as a legitimatized bias in these United States.
