Opening Friday, February 22nd, from 6PM - 11PM

On view through Saturday, March 2nd

In the show, “Don’t Be Scurred: Pathways to Liberation”, we reflect on intersectional political, communal, and spiritual issues facing people of the diaspora. “Don’t Be Scurred” is reflective of the past and present of African Diasporic history. “Pathways to Liberation” invokes Afro-futurist ideals to envision a better future for people of the African-Diaspora. We should fearlessly, reach towards possibility while celebrating our collective strength, creativity, and perseverance. This show aggregates the unique and inspiring voices of young Black/African-Diasporic artists, reflecting their current experiences, allowing them to vocalize their visions of the future.
