The material in Calvin’s crown is sourced from the special collections at Fisk and the Civil Rights Room at the Nashville Public Library; it is related to the Nashville Student Movement led by Diane Nash. By Way of Revolution honors the history, labor, and impact of women at the forefront of activism past and present.

Two other works from the By Way of Revolution series have been installed as vinyl murals on Talley-Brady Hall. Another original work of art is featured in Multiplicity: Blackness in Contemporary American Collage at the Frist Art Museum in Nashville.
