This is the official project video for my new series of drawings "Ten Little Nigger Girls." It's worth watching for anyone who would like to better understand the inspiration behind my project, in particular, a 1907 children's book/ nursery rhyme in which black children are eliminated (some killed off). It also offers some clarity about why I chose to develop this series in the first place, especially given the current climate in the United States, which in many ways, is lacking in safe spaces (literal and conceptual) for black children.
The exhibition "Ten Little Nigger Girls" is currently on view in the Arno Maris Gallery at Westfield State University, but only for a little while longer - it closes February 27. Here is a link to the official press release, along with gallery hours (scroll to bottom):http://www.westfield.ma.edu/…/westfield-state-professors-ex…
