Between Ourselves Exhibition


Between Ourselves Exhibition


Between Ourselves is an immersive art experience that explores how black people ignore their inner workings of ourselves in order to assimilate to white culture. It examines the affirmation that comes from identifying with the black community white also experiencing alienation and rejections from that same community.

Do you feel safe around your people?

Are you lost to assimilation?

Let’s have a conversation between ourselves.
