Freedom Train Exhibition Reception

Join me in Baltimore for some good music, good food, & good vibes at a live and in person reception for my Freedom Train exhibition. It features the artistry of Ed Towles, renown for his work with Black Enterprise magazine… Thursday, July 29th at 7pm… I hope to see you there. (COVID protocol in play)

The Freedom Train exhibition tells the story of Harriet Tubman and her resistance to bondage and enslavement. The artwork of Ed Towles presents a necessary celebration of Black power and resilience that allows for a comparison of past to present. During the year 2020, in addition to a world-wide corona pandemic crisis, widespread protests were witnessed across the United States in response to the police killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and too many other African Americans at the hands of police brutality. The oppressive nature of violence in current times is driven by the same systemic oppression of the chattel slavery that America was built upon. (curator: Kibibi Ajanku)
