NIAD Windows Exhibition: History in the Making organized by Raven Harper and Shawna Kinard //

About the exhibition

In this exhibition, Shawna Kinard and Raven Harper are exploring their relationship to Black history through the lens of NIAD Studio Artists whose work they identify with.

“Black women deserve to be heard. Often Black people don’t get to be heard and I wanted to show Black women because I know a lot about Black history. Black history is important to know about because it’s something you can teach your children about.”

For Raven Harper, her curatorial direction followed the pathway of remembering.

“People these days should recognize that our ancestors did it for us. Rosa Parks wouldn’t get off the bus and Martin Luther King made the ‘I Have a Dream’ speech and if they didn’t do those things we’d still be fighting for our rights.”
