Escrava Anastácia, era uma escrava brasileira do século 18. Ela teve uma existência brutal porque ela se recusou a ceder aos desejos sexuais de seu mestre. Grande parte de sua vida é o tema do folclore e às vezes é representado com olhos azuis. Uma mulher de grande beleza, ela estava amordaçada com uma máscara e muitas vezes sofria em silêncio. Hoje, em todo o Brasil, muitas mulheres usam a máscara em demonstrações públicas em honra de Anastácia como um símbolo de resistência.

King said in an interview that this photograph was taken as he tried to explain to his daughter Yolanda why she could not go to Funtown, a whites-only amusement park in Atlanta. King claims to have been tongue-tied when speaking to her. “One of the most painful experiences I have ever faced was to see her tears when I told her Funtown was closed to colored children, for I realized the first dark cloud of inferiority had floated into her little mental sky.”
