The Black Woman is God: Reclaim, Reconfigure, and Re-Remember
February 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pmFree
The Black Woman is God (TBWIG) celebrates the Black female presence as the highest spiritual form – God, and challenges viewers to do the same. Artists bring history and culture alive by refocusing the audience on where humanity really began–the womb of the African woman through musical, performing, and visual artists.
Join Karen Seneferu for a curator–led tour and Q&A of the exhibition The Black Woman is God: Reclaim, Reconfigure, and Re-Remember, hosted at SOMArts Cultural Center.
We’ll explore the intersectionality of race, age, and gender and will examine Black women’s contributions as artists, healers, and social change-makers. Featuring new works by Black women employing painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, film/video, mixed, new media, and performance – this is an event not to be missed!
To join us, please register with your email. You will receive information on how to access the Zoom event on the day before the program.
This community gathering is hosted by Contra Costa County Library’s Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity Committee (EDI), in partnership with SOMArts Cultural Center.
Funding for this event made possible due to the generous support from the Friends of the Martinez Library.
