Huge congratulations to Sara in Year 12 who has won 1st Place in the TSAT Black History Month Art Competition 2023 for her work entitled 'Saluting Our Sisters'. This is a fantastic achievement from a very talented artist who won 2nd place in the competition last year.
Sara has described her brilliant digital portrait:
“For this year's art competition, I chose to create a digital art portrait of Rosa Parks.
Rosa Parks' courageous act of civil disobedience had a profound and lasting impact on Black History and the broader struggle for civil rights in the United States. Her legacy serves as a reminder of the power of individual actions in the face of injustice and the importance of perseverance in the fight for equality, which is why I believe she is most suitable for the theme of 'Saluting Our Sisters'.
Rosa Parks had a significant and lasting impact on Black history and the broader civil rights movement in the United States. Her refusal to give up her seat to a white person on a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama on December 1st, 1955, was a pivotal moment in the struggle for civil rights and racial equality.”
