First Place
Caroline Torres

The runaway slave, Violet, in this ad is trying not to be caught and bound back into slavery by her white owner. To show this, I used different colored charcoals and drew Violet running away. The white bondage around her, dragging her down, represents the slave owners and everyone else trying to capture her and force her back into slavery. The background is a nighttime scene far away from where Violet ran. But even though she is so close to freedom, she is soon captured, bound, and brought back to slavery by her white slave owner, like so many before and after her.
