ART | "A Mothering Blackness"


In celebration of Women's History Month, the Rochester Black Arts Council and many participating artists present "A Mothering Blackness: Emancipation Proclamation." The multimedia exhibit challenges revisionist and biased perceptions of the "afrikan wombman," and swirls together visual art, spoken-word pieces, musical performances, and films. On Tuesdays, continuing through May 19, the exhibit organizers will screen films that explore stories and journeys of African women and children.

"A Mothering Blackness: Emancipation Proclamation" will be on display through May 19 at the Frederick Douglass Resource Center, 36 King Street. Exhibit hours are 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., Thursday through Sunday, and continues through May 19. $10. RBAC's Facebook page will provide specifics for the Tuesday film series on an ongoing basis.
