This is a 1 minute clip of a longer spoken piece entitled In Dark Skin. It addresses the complexities of raising a black male, through the eyes of a mother. It answers the mystery and highlights historical explanations as to why mothers of black boys tend to be protective of their sons. This work includes a sculpture of a mother holding up a shield in one hand and her significantly larger son in the other.
The media includes video projection, as well as sound (original song and word). Each element represents a thing that endangers the black male (Systems designed to destroy black boys, teachers lacking cultural proficiency, police brutality, etc.) This work functions as a stand-alone art piece, as well as a tool for cultural proficiency.
