This drawing in the Indianapolis Freeman shows Uncle Sam standing impotently before a robed figure, Ethiopia, as she gestures toward the shooting of innocent African American men and women, and a burning church. “See how my people are murdered, maltreated and outraged in the South,” Ethiopia says, “and you, with a great army and navy, are taking no measures to prevent it.” Ethiopia was a recurring figure in Freeman iconography, who represented strong advocacy of equal protection and due process.
