PROJECT SAPPHIRE

When: Sun., June 23, 3-6 p.m. 2019

This exhibition explores the Sapphire Caricature and the role it has played in shaping the culture of today. This caricature portrays black women as rude, loud, malicious, stubborn, and overbearing. The Sapphire Caricature is a harsh portrayal of African American women, but it is more than that; it is a social control mechanism that is employed to punish black women who violate the societal norms that encourage them to be passive, servile, non-threatening, and unseen. The event will center around ten pieces, each exploring the truths, the struggles and the dreams of 10 women of color.

Price: $5
