Jump at the Sun

I'm doing the Florida Humanities Council's Jump at the Sun workshop this week. The FHC program is focused on Zora Neale Hurston and her Eatonville Roots. My job is to talk about the context around black communities after the Civil War.  I'm lucky that I can tell the story through a number of different narratives.  I'm always experimenting with new techniques around visualization and narrative.  I put together this graphic to grab people's attention. Is it working?
