African-American

African-American

Both this woman’s design and her background are supposed to represent the fundamentally dual heritage that the African-American people have. One part of it is rooted in Africa (most of all West Africa) and the other in the culture that developed in the United States of America. The amulet hanging from the woman’s necklace is a cross between an American star, an Egyptian ankh, and a West African adinkra symbol for freedom and emancipation.
