A story of post-slavery life.

Illustrator Rockwell Kent studied architecture at Columbia University (1900-03) and art at the New York School of Art (1903-04) where he was influenced by Robert Henri and had ties with the social realist Ash Can group of artists. Kent was well known for his poster designs which often contained symbolism to convey political or social messages.
