AS AN ART STUDENT AND A BLACK WOMAN, I—and my practice—am in the constant state of becoming. I currently use drawing to problematize the image of Black life in Western portraiture. I collect found photographs, weaving them with the spirits of my subjects into imagined and historical narratives. While in quarantine, I’ve thought about how Black communities can effect lasting change in a social ecosystem, and I expect to witness more anti-racist revolution in the future.
