Redbone Swag

Redbone Swag
Redbone Swag addresses the active legacy of African diasporic histories in America by memorializing the displaced and implicating viewers in their own comfortable apathy. I am concerned with these aftereffects on the black female body. The non-consensual liminality of this particular identity exists at the crossroads of streamlined exclusion, where in divested agency and misrepresentation go un-checked.
