I made a series of metal sculptures about African history in America, as a final assignment for the year. I chose this subject, cause I feel it is a black page in the history of humanity, but it is often forgotten.

It's sort of a timeline, and this is the fifth one: 'Freedom', about the prospect for Afro-Americans after the slavery, which was not a very bright one. Soon after it became known that black people may vote, groups like the KKK formed. It began with burning houses to scare people and withhold them to vote. Later, they started killing people too. It is known that, from 1880 - 1951, 3,437 Afro-American people were lynched, not only by the KKK, but also by other racist mobs.

The sculpture shows a rope with the silhouette of a face coming from the bottom. I didn't want to make this too graphic, my aim was more to make it look iconic.
