The Black Woman Is GOD Exhibition Presents...'A SACRED BEAUTIFUL - Natural Heritage Hair: An African Diasporan Photo

Thursday, August 30, 2018, 4:00 PM - 11:00 PM


AUG. 30 – OCT. 2, 2018:
The Black Woman Is GOD Exhibition Presents...'A SACRED BEAUTIFUL - Natural Heritage Hair: An African Diasporan Photo Exposé.' The underlying inspiration for A Sacred Beautiful exhibition was inspired by curatorial research of the "reclamation of our hair-itage," the global African Diasporan Natural Hair Movement - birthed in the 20thcentury, and to bring attention to the dreadful Louisianan 1786 Tignon Law.

AmiLak, Lyn, and Mcgillvery respond to the African Diasporan ‘ancestral calls’ in order to manifest exquisite and iconoclastic textural photographic visual language, in the 21st century. Thus, we are delighted that these eighteen visually superb and extraordinary photographic examples of A Sacred Beautiful join the ranks of the African Disaporan Natural Hair Movement’s zeitgeist-makers.
