".....on the Legacy of Slavery"
I started this group during the summer of 2008. Like so many, I was riveted by
the Presidential race. And I was dismayed to hear people say that Obama just
seemed too unknown, not trustworthy; I attribute that discomfort to racism, to the
legacy of slavery. I began creating these book and wall pieces about slavery,
incorporating historical texts and images of people of different races in our urban
world. This work is ongoing.
