Visually stimulating historically enlightening artwork by artist Conrad Gardner.
His mission is to use art as a medium to raise the level of awareness of all people as to the rich and powerful history of black people from ancient times to the present. The painting titled “The Hue Man Chess Game” is a must see.
In a nutshell, it depicts a dark skinned couple playing a light skinned couple a game of chess on a small chess board as they themselves, unknowingly, are being played on a much bigger chess board that they are sitting on.
It is a visual representation of the issues that we, people of color, have amongst ourselves and encourages us to work together.
Regardless of where the slave ships landed, they all left from the same place.
