Reflections of Resistance celebrates Black Womxn and their challenges to democracy. The piece shows the progression of Black women in early civil rights movements to now. And how each of the three women is a reflection of one another fighting a similar battle for democracy.
When you often look at Black Women in early civil rights movements, they were not only providers for their families but also organizers of these early movements. Very parallel to the movements we see today such as BLM. I wanted to tell stories of the mothers, sisters, and women who were in their community but despite it all, came together and fought for democracy. They deserve to be amplified. This piece celebrates black womanhood.
