Analysis- Bronte Bagwell
The subtle idea of this variety of images shows how cruel slavery really was. These images also showed the potential for African Americans and whites to be at peace through children.
The most surprising thing about the images I observed was how much more African Americans were portrayed as kind figures in children stories rather than any other type of grouping.
