W16 Brakefield - ENGLISH 230 - Contemporary Representations of "the Road"

This is a print of an African American man in a mule-drawn wooden cart. There is a yew tree in the cart, behind the man. The man wears a white shirt with the sleeves rolled up, dark pants, and a cap. The road is empty, with fields surrounding the road. There is a wooden church in the background with a tall cross in the ground beside the church.
