Description: "The Spirit of Togetherness" is meant to show how we have the responsibility to remind people of a struggle that, today, seems so many have forgotten. The people in the painting are displaying figures from the civil rights movement that have fought and died for our rights to be free. The true power in the piece is not on the visual imagery of some of the greatest African Americans to fight for civil rights, but also the individuals who carry those images. The piece speaks to our civil past, civil present and civil future.
