Gallery Talk: Expressions of Blackness





The gallery talk I attended was "Expressions of Blackness" in February during Black History Month. As seen in these photos, there were some serious issues raised on campus about race. I learned a lot about the SMCM campus through this event. Most notably, the amount of racism on campus when people are able to hide behind anonymity. The YikYaks, as seen above, are crude and disgusting. The Expressions of Blackness gallery installation starts a dialogue with the campus. People are forced to recognize the racism and disgrace that is seen all around our campus and even on social media.
