8th Grade Artist Mackenzie Weathersby created this beautiful painting in honor of Black History Month 2016 at Green Acres Middle School. It was displayed at the Black History Program and in the school office.
Title: 'Confidence 7'
Artist Statement: "The lady is showing that Black Is Beautiful. Her necklace has planets on it to show she is the universe. The purple and white stars represent the galaxy. Her hair is the sun... a big, great star. The chains attached to the foot show what us 'Afro Americans' have been through. The fist is to represent Black Power for our strength. The flag is for respect and to show what we stand for."
