philamuseum:

This work by Kara Walker, from a series of etchings called “An Unpeopled Land in Uncharted Waters,” reflects the trauma of the transatlantic slave trade. A member of both the American Philosophical Society and the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Walker blends artistic mediums that create compelling visual narratives, and is a leader in addressing the legacy of discrimination and oppression through art.
