After purchasing an item from a mail order catalog, I unintentionally started receiving junk mail catalogs from white supremacist sources. As I perused the catalogs, I was impressed and alarmed by how often the Confederate flag was represented on items such as lighters, belt buckles and bed sheets. Most curious was the disclaimer by the sellers who used the caption “Heritage Not Hate” below products depicting the Confederate flag. The title of the work originates from this slogan.
In this photo mosaic of 150 four inch acrylic tiles, images of people, politicians, events, signs and symbols are presented in the form of a Confederate flag. Think of the individual images as pixels of larger issues directly or indirectly related to racism and resistance to it in the United States.
