Catalogue Note

"I read feverishly, especially everything that James Baldwin had written on relationships between Blacks and Whites in America. Baldwin understood, I felt, the disparity between black and white people as well as anyone; but I had something to add — the visual depiction of the way we are and look. I wanted my paintings to express this moment I knew was history. I wanted to give my woman’s point of view to this period.”
