“Does My Bow Tie Make it Better?” by Kijana Martin
Dallas area artist Kijana Martin exhibits a new body of work that explores the often treacherous environment African Americans must navigate in their quest to gain acceptance by White America. Using a variety of media, Martin probes the question of what will it take for African Americans to be able to be their natural selves without raising the suspicians, fears and disdain of White America and how is the sociopolitical landscape changing as a new generation of freedom fighters emerges?
