The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.

quote by: Friedrich Nietzsche, (1844-1900) German Philosopher

Artist Statement

We all inherit a collective past that shapes our ideas and our futures. The central theme of this piece is two children looking to the past. They recognize the struggles that have shaped civil rights. These children are able to embrace due to this past they inherited, as they embrace the future.
