H(A)UNTED: Curatorial Statement

Presented by: Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI) and the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA)
On View: April 26 – May 18, 2012

CCCADI and MoCADA are committed to upholding a tradition of arts and activism. In the same manner in which Ida B. Wells-Barnett fought feverishly against lynchings and W.E.B. du Bois urged artists to use their talent for the sake of propaganda, our institutions encourage artists to use their voices to contribute to the empowerment of our communities. In response to Travyon Martin’s recent unwarranted murder and the consequences of being Black and male in America, a group of artists were invited to join us in raising critical awareness in the demand for justice and the fight to end the criminalization of Black men that is an apparent result of racial stereotyping.
