Blood on Leaves by Ashley Lugo

Blood on the Leaves (featured above) is a work created by Ashley Lugo, depicting the history of slavery in Southern Alabama. Ashley was raised in Southern Alabama and bore witness to the everyday effects of post-slavery in her hometown. This work comments on the history of overlooking the history of slavery by focusing on the beauty of the era rather than a oppressive span of time that in some ways still exists.
