The Charleston Massacre devastated me. I could not believe the level of evil a young person was capable of due to the venomous indoctrination of hate. This piece was created after reading about the numerous black churches that were horrifically being burned down through the south after the Charleston Massacre. The stained glass window is from 1896 and the brass fire extinguisher is from the 1920's. Both come from old churches in South Arkansas. The wooden background is made from an old church pew from off Roosevelt Road in Little Rock, Arkansas and burned along with old wallpaper attached to it.

BLESSED ASSURANCE is comprised of glass, metal and wood.
