“Little Africas”

Client: NC BLOC
Medium: Mixed Media 
Year: 2021

“NC BLOC has gathered Black community members across the state to collaboratively craft our own freedoms for the vision of the North Carolina we want, deserve, and are manifesting.“

Out of the 10 Freedoms that were presented I chose to respond to:

5: Freedom to build  Co-Operatives & Alternatives, Free from Poverty

6: Freedom to Keep Our Communities Safe, Free from Policing, Prisons and War 

7: Freedom to Thrive in our own Communities, Free from Displacement 

This piece references Black housing disparities, community destruction as well as systematic boundaries that need to be undone to create equitable spaces.
