Description

Title: For This is Sacred Ground - Medium: Digital Photo Composition from Digital Photography, Pigment Print on Hahnemuhle Watercolor Rag - Size: 48 x 27 Inches - Year: 2019. Free blacks built a community near the Gunpowder River where they had been formerly enslaved in the forges. In September 1887, black and white participants gathered together to pray at the old site of the forges where the railroad bridge crosses the river today, and iron bolts from the industrial operation could still be seen protruding from the rocks. The Latin inscription I have added translates: "Know your land."
