REDEFINITION: THE REBIRTH OF THE BLACK WOMAN – OAKSTOP
March 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
“There is no doubt that the struggle of the African woman in the Diaspora has been a brutal one, and the challenges of the African American woman, the ”Black” woman, has been particularly unique. She represents a minority in the country of her birth and the more jarring reality is that neither through politics or revolution will she ever become America’s ruling race or class. Therefore, her challenges to be free, much more to be herself under a dominant white supremacist system, is unmatched in the Diaspora.“
– Abba Yahuda, Curator
The Rebirth of the Black Woman is a group show of fine artists comprised of the “Black” female in a cathartic journey through the expression of fine art.
Redefinition will feature the intimate journey of creativity and how African-American women are using art as a means of healing. This project will focus on, but is not limited to, the mediums of painting, drawing, and photography.”
The Redefinition will give us a glimpse inside the world of the creative genius of the African American woman. Through words and images, it will force us to take an intimate look and reckon with what it took and is taking for her to reclaim her own divine self.”
The exhibition opens Thursday, March 6th in the gallery at Oakstop 17.
