Freedom Seekers

The original header above designed by Anthony and I incorporates freedom seekers taken from 19th-century slave advertisements. The lady has a magnolia in hand; this represents the state of my birth, Mississippi, USA. What I love most about those old ads is that they represent agency and movement for which I stand. The excerpt underneath is from one of my favorite documents, The Declaration of Independence. The image and the quote reflect one of my favorite quotes by activist and Quaker Lucretia Mott, “I am no advocate to passivity.”
