Their art shares life stories through expressions of frustration, pride, racism, joy, and pain.

The exhibition includes works and performances by Tina Brewer, Ashley Jones, Mary Martin, Christine Bethea, Jo-Anne Bates, Ruth Bedeian, Carlos Peterson, V Owens, Ricardo Iamuuri Robinson, and Jasiri X.
