Everyday Contains All Of History
The project, “Everyday Contains All of History” is an extension of my longstanding work to explore the black experiences in America with a specific focus on the nation’s cultural and structural responses to black bodies – blackness not as a construct or an idea but as a literal and physical presence upon the American landscape. Specifically, how do reflections of black history shape our culture? How does the act of archiving that history inform how Black identity is perceived and received?
The visual essay on the neglected histories of Black Americans and the diaspora are result of being granted access to the National Great Blacks in Wax Museum located in Baltimore, MD.
