By Sam "The Dot Man" McMillan
Born: 1926 (Robeson County, NC)
This clock has one of Sam’s favorite images and phrases: white and black children hold hands, and below them Sam has written “If we hold hands, we can’t fight.” An American flag is included to show that he means this to address the people of the United States. Despite having experienced the discrimination and violence of the Jim Crow South, Sam has frequently used his career as an artist to promote racial harmony and togetherness.
