I am currently in the process of brainstorming and researching for my solo show in November. The show will be focused on African American culture, history and politics. I am looking at creating a poster series as well as an ink and wash section. The posters will address individual topics such as hair in the African American community, Black theology, and hate groups like the KKK and their impact in everyday life (mine included). The ink drawings will be about individuals that have played a large role in African American history.
Here are seven topics that I researched a couple months ago and plan to use.
In addition to those listed above, there are several names, events, and issues that I would like to research more. Here are six.
