When the world is destroyed, someone must remake the world. I think you’d call that art.

Bring Me My Purse project

Did you know that the average net worth of a Black woman in America is $0 if she is college educated; -$1100 if she is not. How did we get here? How did enslaved Black women create wealth through their physical and reproductive labor to now passing debt down through generations? How do Black woman continue to be the societal “breadlosers” while feeding everyone else? How much do we owe Black women? When will we pay up?

This project will feature interviews, photography and videography that will culminate in an installation that will house visual art, audio, performances, workshops and digital interventions.

I am looking for sponsors that would like to support this work. Contact me if you or someone you know would like to put some money in my purse for this project.
