As an African American father and son and a light-skinned mother and daughter approach the subway from different directions, the boy asks the titular question. As the children notice one another more—as well as the people participating in sporting and musical activities viewed through the train window—they each ponder related questions. Acrylic, colored pencil, and collage scenes containing many types on diversity invite these thoughts naturally. A clever visual climax brings the children together with intersecting faces at the edges, a trick portraying a common color in the overlap. Much food for conversation. Wendy Lukehart
