From the time when Black people were brought in bondage from Africa to America, there have been turning points in the movement from Slavery to Civil Rights to Black Lives Matter. Those who joined in those pivotal moments risked physical harm, imprisonment, even life itself for full and complete freedom. The iconic images of artist Pamela Chatterton-Purdy in this book honor the sacrifice of these ordinary people who made an extraordinary commitment for human dignity. The iconic form, gold leaf with red background represent the sacred nature of the moment’s belief in the efficacy of non-violent transformation. A collaborative book, it is enhanced by Rev. Dr. David A. Purdy’s historical text of the people and events depicted in each icon.
