Jennifer Mack Watkins
Black Boy Hope II

2020

US$1,200

About

June 16th, 1944 an African American 14-year-old boy George Stinney was wrongly accused of murder and became the youngest child executed in the United States in the 20th century. The work titled “Black Boy Hope” depicts a bright future that is hoped for all African American children growing up in the United States of America. As an act of resilience, the subject has the freedom to be joyful, great, and can determine his own future without biases or stereotypes. The print is made up of various layers that are visible that represent the everyday experiences of African Americans as victims who have continue to be racially targeted historically, past, and present. This work will accompany the upcoming print exhibition “ Children of The Sun” that will be exhibited for the first time at The Brattleboro Museum, Vermont in March 2021.
