A 9 Year Old Super Talented Young Black Girl Artist From Detroit Has Done Something Really Amazing.
A big congratulations goes out to Gabrielle Faisal who won first place in the White House Historical Association’s National Student Art Competition. Her winning piece of art work featured a pair of shackled Black hands holding the White House between their palms with The American flag in the background.
Gabrielle said, “I was inspired to paint this picture because of the history I read and learned from my father. The White House is a symbol of America that was built by enslaved African-Americans,”
“The red stripes symbolize our struggle for freedom, the white stripes symbolize the purity of our struggle. The blue is the symbol of justice for all people, no matter what color. The stars represent the unity of all people coming together. The shackled hands are the hands of enslaved Africans who built the White House.”
Gabrielle will receive a $1,000 cash prize and will have her work featured in The White House’s visitors center along with all of the other finalists now through Sept. 22.
And thats wassup…we love that!
