John Quincy Adams Ward: The Freedman

John Quincy Adams Ward

The Freedman, 1863

“This artist chose a classic Greek pose to depict the physical and symbolic strength of a man newly freed from slavery. This resonates with me because it shows strength instead of the stereotypical weakness or lack of intelligence of men who were enslaved.”
