Close Minded

by: Geneva Sims,

Just because she was black, people told her she had no worth. Just because of his religion, a man hated him. Just because they looked different, he wanted them to die. Why? What good can come from hate?

quote by: Robin M., 10th Grade, Manatee High School - Bradenton, Florida

Artist Statement

Close Minded is a play on how 'alike' the human race really is. Most people focus on the historical events that caused great suffering, like those depicted in the painting. I hope people will be reminded we are 'close' minded because we belong to the human race.
