As Maya Angelou once wrote; " It was custom not to sell vanilla ice cream to blacks in many parts of the South, except on Independence day during the Jim Crow era. Although, it was a black enslaved named Edmund Albius who perfected the flavor of Vanilla ice cream. It's white sweetness was viewed as a representation of the American Dream, which was why Black people were kept from eating it".
We've come a long way but yet we are still far from where we should be when it comes to equality.
I call this piece Ice C.R.E.A.M,
Yes, I'm a Wu-Tang fan.
Ice C.R.E.A.M was created with acrylic paint on double primed cotton canvas.
The painted frame was spray painted gold measuring 26.5x 29.5 giving an antique, rustic appearance.
