Glimmer of Hope

I decided to choose the advertisement announcing the runaway of the slave Violet and her two children, Willis and Joe. I chose this advertisement because I think it clearly shows a mother's concern for her kids and also her desire for a better life. I noticed that the owner was not very concerned with the actual people. He was more concerned with losing his "appliances," or workers.

I decided to interpret this article through a paper cut-out project. The artwork shows three slaves walking along a path towards a gold sun. These people do not have faces because this represents their lack of identity and importance in society. However, all three of them do have a golden highlight on their face. This symbolizes that they have a hope of walking to a better life.
