Dragon Panel Project

The Dragon Panel Project is one such action.

The purpose of the original Dragon Panel Project is to bear witness to violence against people of color. It is similar to the Clothesline Project which was also created by Rachel Carey-Harper to bring awareness to violence against women.  The Dragon  Panel Project grew out of a “Vigil for Victims of Hate Crimes: Holding in the Light Those who Suffer Vicious Human Rights Violations” initiated by James Varner at New England Yearly Meeting in 2013. For that event, Rachel creating two panels on black foam core that named Trayvon Martin and James Bird. The following year she added a panel for Michael Brown. 

Soon after this, Rachel created a dragon by adding more panels, a dragon head and tail, and the Dragon Panel Project was born.

The Dragon continued to grow and in 2018  inspiration came to Rachel to design a companion piece to celebrate “ordinary” people of color who’ve done extraordinary things and the Dragon of Many Colors was created.
