New Life is a delicate spring green that shifts to a bright gold and is packed with gold shimmer.
This fresh color is inspired by the life of Biddy Mason. Mason was a former slave who, after being brought by her owner to California, petitioned the court and was granted proof of her freedom. She became a nurse midwife and with her earnings was able to purchase land in Los Angeles, making her one of the first African American landowners in California. She was a philanthropist who generously shared her wealth with others, especially the poor and the imprisoned. The green chosen is a symbol of Mason’s new life, the new life of the babies born in her care as a nurse, and the green trees growing in the park named for her.
