Let My People Go
The Crimes of U-Rope
The Haitian Revolution
The Lamentations of Mother Earth
Each of these may be considered mini-exhibitions to accommodate your gallery size and program focus.

Mural-like in composition, size and scope, the magnificent pieces in this collection portray vital history lessons that stimulate and compel the viewer to contemplate past, present and future social order. They offer a captivating and enlightening visual landscape that satisfies the essential mission of Pan African education, to promote education that is liberating. “RASTAFARI VISIONS” boldly complements any program of study dealing with the historical African holocaust and the present day manifestation of that holocaust.
