Here is a painting I completed representing my impression of 16 rabbis (& a civil rights worker) in a sweltering St Augustine jail cell in 1964 after peacefully marching with Martin Luther King while holding hands with local black adults & children. While there, with only the light from a single bare bulb in the hallway, they wrote “Why We Came” on the back, ironically, of a Klu Klux Klan flyer.

I am presently deciding on a title so I can copyright it. People have advised me to do that first of all. Then I will explore making prints of it. I am planning to do two other paintings as part of a triptych, or threesome, to complement this painting. They will feature scenes of St. Augustine.
