Speak to Me of Rivers: An Exploration of Race, Identity, and Lived Experience in African American Culture; February 12 - March 3, 2019:
“I got called a sissy a lot . . . I was kind of sensitive, creative, and in touch with my emotions. I was kept safe, and that’s what I remember most about adolescence. A kind of safe space. Really safe. It [beauty shop] was almost like a collective. So I really grew up in this matriarchal society that was kind of self-sustaining. Super, super powerful . . . and they allowed me to be me.” — Mark Bradford
