The Rituals of Black Womxnhood

The Rituals of Black Womxnhood places emphasis on where and how womxn of the diaspora express the realities of their personhood. This exhibition is organized into three themes: Life, Healing, and Nature. Each theme is explored in independent and interrelated expressions.

As the global celebration of the end of Trump’s regime persists, preliminary estimates from exit polls conducted by Edison Research for the National Election Pool report that Black Women were the leading demographic in voting for President-Elect Joe Biden. While News outlets will focus on the political participation of Black Womxn, “The Rituals of Black Womanhood” aims to expand this conversation and explore the lives and practices of Black women who hope for a better tomorrow for the United States.

*Womxn is an alternative spelling to remove ‘men’ centrality and to be inclusive of trans and nonbinary folks*
