Nyame Brown – Classroom in Nevérÿon

Brown’s paintings and drawings are opportunities to explore the concept of Diaspora as Trans-Atlantic, psychic, and imagined spaces. As a tool to combat racial oppression, He sees his blackboard paintings as a cultural production of the black community providing space to create a new black mythology.

 

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
