“Behind the Mask”:
The mask has become a part of Black existence. It’s purpose, for generations, has served hiding our pain and joy for survival in white spaces. My first solo exhibition this fall at the Durham Arts Council will visually explore Black individuality and the myriad of emotions Black families experience behind the mask. 100% of profits from art sales will be donated to “The Village of Wisdom”. “The Village of Wisdom”, is a Durham based organization whose mission is to “Close the academic opportunity gap by protecting the intellectual curiosity and positive racial self-concept of Black children through the love and wisdom of their families and communities.”
I plan to spend time documenting Black families over the next two months. If you would like your family considered for this please sign up below.
