Yesterday's Black History Month adventure took me to the High Museum to see Sonya Clark's exhibit We are Each Other.
My favorite part of the exhibit was the beaded prayers project. It's huge and covers an entire room. I love the idea of connecting so many people, and once the individual parts are assembled, it resembles a quilt.
A large part of the exhbit dealt with hair and combs. It was very creative, but I have to say I was not particularly moved by that part of the exhbit. However, her rendition of Madame C.J. Walker is spectacular.
Photos really don't do the exhibit justice. You really need to see it in person, and so you can buy the book that documents the exhibit. Don't wait. It closes February 18th.
