About the Persisters Series:

"The engagement is visual as well as narrative. While each portrait puts viewers in mind of the incredible work done by these women, their stories and histories (which of course are ongoing), the visual contents are perhaps even more inspiring. These huge canvases are infused with energy and inspiring joy. You can see the delight and commitment with which they persist in resisting. The colors are striking and vibrant. The brushstrokes are bravura yet nuanced to be sure. After seeing these recent works by Jo Hay, one has a sense that yes, it is possible to persist and in fact it’s required and will be exhilarating."

— John T. O’Connor

Stacey Abrams served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 2007 to 2017. She is a member of the Democratic party and was the nominee in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election. This made her the first African-American, female, major-party gubernatorial nominee in the United States. She lost the election to Brian Kemp who was criticized by voting rights advocates for engaging in voter suppression. In 2018, rather than focusing on her own run for president, Abrams founded Fair Fight Action, an organization that works to overcome voter suppression. Her vital efforts have since been widely heralded as the incentive for broad voter turnout among progressives in Georgia winning Joe Biden the state of Georgia in the 2020 presidential election, and Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock senate seats in Georgia's 2020–21 U.S. Senate election and run-off election.
