Abstract

In my work, I explore themes of black identity and black culture as well as dissecting African American History in America and its impact on today’s modern society. This research involves building and researching concepts about critiquing race as a social construct. I address the social issues of colorism within the black community and its relation to privilege. Through different approaches and mediums including video, painting, sculpture, and printmaking, I explore black representation, race relations, and social justice issues.
