Big Shoes to Fill
American history

This scratchboard piece depicts three young children after the abolition of slavery. Besides the victory in the Civil war, many black americans still suffered severe discrimination. The two young children stay close to their older sister as they would to a mother. The look on her face shows wisdom beyond her years, and on her feet she has big shoes to fill.
