"I'm gonna pray. Gonna pray away the way go into an image of a woman raiding a child's hair, and it really is about the kind of nurturing and intimacy of that exchange as she braids. The woman lays grains of rice along the child's head and then leaves them into the hairstyle. Embrace says it was historically away to protect loved ones before the separation of the middle passage or before escaping slavery are grooming was actually quite intentional, in the way of giving a sort of armor to someone embrace, says she was interested in how nurturing and bravery go hand in hand. She cites civil rights activist John Lewis walking across the Edmund Pettus Bridge. What kind of nurturing was given to him that enabled him to do that rightto have that level of peace. And I think there's a similar thing when we think about voting rights, black women while we're left out of that kind of immediate history, clearly we are part of that history. Clearly, we had that kind of intentionality and armor to be at the forefront of these kind of struggles and not receive any of the benefits of them for many years. Not feeling those benefits isn't just exhausting. It's dehumanizing. For many of these artists expressing that is their life's purpose. But Stacy and Chin says it doesn't have to be that way. I would like to see what kind of artist I would be if I were writing about mountains and trees and how satisfying my life is and how safe my little girl is. And I would like to make that kind of heart, at least see if I can make it. You know who knows? Perhaps If such a thing called Utopia happened, I would have no work because they would have nothing to write about. But I would give up my art for utopia. I would give up the life of making art. If the exchange would be a world where we would be safe. I think I want to be safe more than I want to make art. But for now, the art gives voice to the work still to be done.
