Frederick Douglass, a former slave, became one of the most famous abolitionist and an important leader in the movement for African-American civil rights in the 19th century.

Jos Sances was born John Joseph Sances in Boston and attended Montserrat School of Visual Art in Beverly, Massachusetts. For more than 40 years he has made his living as a printmaker and muralist in the San Francisco Bay Area.

In 2010 and 2016 the Library of Congress acquired nearly 500 of Sances’ prints that broadly represent his output. His work has been exhibited widely, including the show “Committed to Print” at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. In 2022 he was invited to show his work at La Sorbonne, Université, in Paris. Sances work is featured in “¡Printing the Revolution! The Rise and Impact of Chicano Graphics 1965 to Now” at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. He is one of the few non-Chicanos whose work is featured in the exhibition.
