About

Three figures stand bound together shackled together by wrist; their backs turned toward the viewers, forming a human chain. In front of them is a visual rhyme in the form of metal bars, implying that the figures are in a prison cell. Additionally, their street attire hints at their recent arrest, representing the black southerners living under Jim Crow. Arrests were the result of charges including walking along railroad tracks, spitting, drinking, loitering, vagrancy, and speaking too loud in public: all of which applied strictly to African Americans. Lawrence pays tribute to the thousands of African Americans capriciously arrested as a result of these unfair charges that resulted from racial tendencies.

Migration panel 22. Another of the social causes of the migrants’ leaving was that at times they did not feel safe, or it was not the best thing to be found on the streets late at night. They were arrested on the slightest provocation.

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free mat board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like a wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
