25x26 - Acrylic on canvas (Tribeca, NYC)
They dropped this cover one block south of Canal Street. I felt the fight for freedom, knowing that on September 3rd 1838 in the building beside me Frederick Douglass disguised himself as a sailor making a stop at this “A” station of Underground Railroad. I wondered if the person who installed this in 1918 thought, “How far we have come.” Yet here I think, 94 years later, “We still got a ways to go.” ($500.)
