In this Exhibition and series of installations I explore the contrast of our origin as Africans to the extensive journey we take as Americans as we battle for the liberty of our pre-colonial existence. Drawing connections between Africans and African Americans: slavery and freedom; celebration and mourning, my practice creates a visual representation of that struggle.

This installation explores the tie between 19th Century Ghanaian warriors’ attire, ceremonial masks and dances and draws connections to modern-day descendants of Ghana and other West African countries, Africans from the Diaspora to the slavery of Africans. American Jim Crow and modern-day issues with the safety of people of color without justice.


Follow the path from pre-colonial African celebration and defense to slavery, Jim Crow, and the modern-day African American family as they seek true freedom. Freedom to dance and celebrate life as one who is truly free. Freedom to Defend: protecting one's self and their loved ones without injustice.

Family Dinner

This installation provokes a dialogue about the tradition of sharing meals as a family at the table. 

In a world where life is busier than it ever was, families find themselves grabbing food and eating in front of the TV or in their bedrooms. There has long been a disconnect between family members who don't take time to be screenless and share about their lives, successes, and challenges alike. Many homes are built without a dining room so big events at the home are again spread out around the house often divided by generations and gender.

In this installation, we remind our viewers of the importance of this all but lost social practice and invite them to join us for a meal at the Family Table that can impact the next generation and perhaps restore the practice and strengthen families.
