Sacred Ships

This series is a tribute to the African Ancestors that were forced into slavery. They are the strongest - mentally, physically, & spiritually. That is why we survived the slave castles, middle passage, & slavery. That is why we continue to survive in the midst of the war on black and brown people. 

 The following is a selection of designs that are sacred to the children of the Diaspora. The ship + The Adinkra form a sacred shield to remind us who we are, where we come from, and the power we hold within us.
