Visualizing the History of Free Women of Color

A collaborative project by Sawyer Rose, FRSA, MRSS Visual Artist and Angela Williams Bickham, MFA, MA Independent Researcher and Poet

Free Women of Color – women of African descent living outside the bonds of slavery during the pre-Civil War period in the United States – were part of a diverse, dynamic segment of society and often played crucial matriarchal roles in their families.

With My Name in Your Hand, by researcher and poet Angela Williams Bickham and artist Sawyer Rose, memorializes the vibrant lives of these free Black women through large-scale sculpture and historical fiction as poetry. 

Attendees will learn:

  • About this fascinating and arguably understudied Antebellum demographic, while coming to a poignant understanding that these free women lived during an extraordinary time in United States history and their experiences deserve to be remembered.
  • How to get involved in the 'Creativity offers us a new formula for life ASN Project', and use creativity to change lives.
