Black Women Artists make up only 4% of arts professionals across the United States. The average person is either not aware of the work the women are creating or cannot recognize the artist if they saw her walking down the street. Many publications like Huffington Post and LA Times have highlighted and celebrated the work of Black Women Artists connected to exhibitions like We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965-85. Although often times have found it difficult to track down proper documentation of their work, stories attached to them during the time they were making it and the journey that it took them to get to that point. I want to eradicate the narrative that we are still looking for Black Women Artist, they are here. I have been working as a freelance and exhibiting photographer since completing my Bachelors Degree 4 years ago. During this time I have focused much of my work on documenting the arts community here in Atlanta and most recently began preserving the work and narratives of Black Women Artists.
