The Black Woman Is God
"The Black Woman is God" exhibit examines, questions, and problematizes the idea of seeing the Black Woman as a God figure. Artists will use materials, forms and iconography that challenges the belief that the image of God is white and male. This exhibit addresses new representations of the Black female presence as the highest spiritual form, God, herself and challenges the viewers to do the same."
