The Black On Black Project

Equity over Equality™

"The the perspective of the 'others'"

march 28 - april 27, 2019 | Leland Cultural arts center
1212 Magnolia Village Way, Leland, NC 28451 (Map)

Exhibition statement: Society hasn't always depicted people of color in a fair way or taken into consideration our perspective on the world around us. Who gets to decide what perspective is shared as the one that counts? "The Perspective of the 'Others'" is an exhibition where artists of color share their thoughts on identity in their own voice. #BlackOnBlackLCAC

This project was supported by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources.
