Your #Panel61 by Cameron Smith

My panel represents a large scale of the world having a lot of deep features. The Great Migration may have been a time that would seem happy because blacks had something to look forward to. Although it was a happy time, it was also very hard at the same time. Many blacks still experienced discrimination based on religion, racism, unequal rights and much more. Although it is quite impossible to depict what they were going through back then, my picture makes an analogy of the problems but also shows possible solutions for the simple fact that these are still hardships. Although the world has come a long way, the is a lot that still needs to be done for equality. The fire represents any and all hardships that were affecting the blacks and the raindrops are putting out the fires of poverty, racism, unequal wages and other issues still facing communities of color.
