A Conversation with Shirley Woodson & Friends

JOIN US on Saturday, March 27, 2022 for A Conversation with Shirley Woodson Reid, Marian Stephens, Halima Afi Cassells and special guests including Nichole Christian and the women of the WHERE WE AT Exhibition on the Black Arts Movement: Then and Now. View more and RSVP HERE.

Through their work, the twenty+ women in this exhibition are paying homage to the Where We At legacy and revisiting the Black Arts Movement as a whole. Some of our NCA members were there – on the frontlines of the movement forging spaces for black artists to prevail – and are still knocking down walls and serving arts communities as sisters, mentors, beacons, and friends. They, along with a range of emerging and mid-career local artists, comprise this exhibition which creates a bridge to history and helps to tell a story of who and where we are today as black women creatives.

Featured artists: April Anue, Asia Hamilton, Bre’ann White, Charlene Uresy, Crystal Starks Webb, Dawn Stringer, Deborah Brown-Cage, Diane Taylor, Donna Jackson, Halima Afi Cassells, Ida Hawkins, Kristina Beaty, Joan Britton, Marian Stephens, Nonnie Williams, Olivia Indigo, Priscilla Phifer, Rita Dickerson, Robbie Best, Shekenia Mann, Shirley Woodson Reid, and Stephanie Hill Ross.

Exhibition runs thru April 16, 2022 at Irwin House Gallery.
