Painting is about historical bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963.
In this piece, I paint the images of the 4 Black girls that were killed in the bombing beneath the scripture of Matthew 18:1-10, juxtaposed from an image of 1 Klansman beneath the scripture of Numbers 25:1-18.
This shows how the spiritual battle between good and evil can lay claim to the same Bible, but use them for opposite forces of righteousness and wickedness. The scripture tells us that children are sacred, yet white supremacists use scripture to justify their evil of bombing churches and burning crosses.
