One-hundred and sixty years ago on October 3, 1860, a group of men dressed in capes carrying lanterns marched for the abolition of slavery and to encourage voters to head to the polls to vote for Abraham Lincoln. Artist Hank Willis Thomas wanted to capture that spirit, so he gathered his network of creatives to form a modern-day version of The Wide Awakes. Last Saturday, on October 3, 2020 Atoms joined The Wide Awakes as the group marched across the United States to encourage the public to cast their votes for the upcoming presidential election.
