Rinse and repeat

The theme of my exhibit "Rinse and Repeat" is about the cycle of violence, conflict, and revolution that is perpetuated in American society. It focuses on various figures and images that speak to the realities, frustrations, and actions of those who have endured social injustice. The images are a mixture of direct and subtle representations about the impact that slave psychology has had and continues to have on Afrikans in America.
