Last week I worked on a piece for The NY Times Op-Ed about Rosa Parks and part of her estate being sold off by an auction house who is refusing to allow historians to examine the collection. The auction house recently released a portion of a letter Parks wrote about being a victim to an attempted rape and I found the letter online and used it in the background of the illustration. Sadly the story was killed, so this piece won't be published, but here it is for posterity. Thanks a bunch to guest Art Director Alicia DeSantis for this assignment!
