Gallery Opening: A Negro From the South

COMMUNITY GALLERY

The United States of America is the country where I was born and where I have lived for most of my life. In this country, I am a second-class citizen. As a child, I was raised to maneuver through systems that were not created for a person like myself, a black person. Many people may not be able to empathize with that statement. It might be incomprehensible, and that is okay. This exhibition will give perspective on my world. When entering those gallery doors, the viewer is attempting to understand; compliant to walk through other minorities’ shoes, and mine, giving voice to the people that are voiceless. The current atmosphere within this country calls for action, a time to speak up and open our eyes to injustice. This is the time to reconsider the meaning of humanity and to create an America for all.
