I need to tell the stories of African American people’s history and accomplishments in hope of strengthening and building confidence in the community. I examine the precious moments that have been erased from our timelines and need to be brought back, like their back breaking work and unforgivable wrongs they endured. I also want to celebrate the triumphs of creating a culture that reaches back and marches forward together.
My work gives a visual voice to those stories and captures the beauty, strength and truth of a people during uncertain times.
