Olaudah Equiano (1745 - 1797)
Bravery. Courage. Strength. Olaudah Equiano
embodied all these traits and more as a kidnapped African prince, forced into
slavery. He survived many years of oppression aboard a slave ship, but through
his relentless hard work and inspiring strength, Equiano endured and persevered
until he finally reclaimed his freedom. He later wrote his own autobiography,
recounting his imprisonment and revealing the horrors of slavery to the world.
His brilliance and strength to speak the truth soon became a catalyst in passing
the Slave Trade Act of 1807. Equiano's courage to fight for what he believed in
- against all odds - was the inspiration for our Equiano print. We are proud
and honored to welcome this heroic print into the Hall of Genius.

her time, but have also been accepted by modern-day readers and authors. Austen
reached a certain level of success in her lifetime, but her popularity
skyrocketed 52 years after her death when her nephew published A
"Memoir of Jane Austen." Today, she is considered to be one of the
greatest writers in English history. Her literary work continues to entertain
and inspire new generations through film, television, theatrical adaptations

Austrian composer, was a prolific artist who created a string of operas,
concertos, symphonies and sonatas that significantly shaped classical music. He
composed more than 600 works of music, including the melody for the famous

bright, bold and beautiful.
This patriotic print is here just in
time to celebrate our country's birthday. Featuring Red, White and Mirror, it's

Mary Pickersgill was an American business woman
and well-known seamstress who created the Great Garrison Flag that flew during
the 1814 Battle of Baltimore. Her flag, which was the largest garrison flag
ever flown at the time, became the inspiration behind a poem written by Francis
Scott Key now known as the United States National Anthem. Today, the original
30 by 42-foot flag created by Mary resides in the Smithsonian Institution's
National Museum of American History.
Aside from her flag making business, Mary also addressed social
issues for disadvantaged women, including housing, employment and financial
aid. As President of the Impartial Female Humane Society, she opened a home for
elderly women that later expanded into an entire retirement community named in
her honor, as was the World War II Liberty ship, the SS Mary Pickersgill.

Wacław Sierpiński was a Polish mathematician known for his work
on set theory, number theory and the theory of functions and topology. He
delivered the first-ever lecture course on theory, and has published more
than 700 papers and 50 books on this subject. Sierpinski has received numerous
awards and recognitions for his contributions to mathematics. He has
three well-known fractals in his honor, including the Sierpinski
triangle. This figure forms a geometric pattern, as the midpoints of each
side of the triangle are connected, creating four additional triangles in which
the sides are connected, allowing infinitely many possible iterations if
