A gifted sculptor, Florida-born Augusta Savage fought poverty, racism and sexism to become a prominent figure in the Harlem Renaissance, the period of African-American cultural outpouring in New York City during the 1920s and '30s. Her extraordinary talent opened many doors that led to her becoming one of the most influential black teachers of her time and a strong voice for civil rights for blacks.

"Lift Every Voice and Sing" sculpture was designed as a temporary installation in the 1939 World's Fair, by Harlem Renaissance artist and sculptress Augusta Savage. This piece stood 16 feet tall. Sadly, like many fair displays it was destroyed at the close of the event. Thankfully we have this photo, that the whole world can enjoy it now and forever.
