In coastal regions such as Maryland, the Chesapeake Bay provided an extensive waterway system that served as a crucial passage to freedom. Although most of the published accounts of enslaved fugitives describe the use of boats or ships as a means of escaping from slavery, until recently, the maritime dimension of the Underground Railroad has been neglected.

If artists had the power to wake in the morning and have the perfect day, have all problems in the world be solved then what would the world look like? “The artist” is often written off as someone who doesn't understand how the world works and whose ideas have no basis of reality within the current system. What is misunderstood in these moments is that the artist can simultaneously hold the world as it is and the world as it should be. The cognitive dissonance between these two worlds is the space where the artist thrives.
