The title “IN THE BLACK” A Visual Anthology is a step towards changing the narrative. Borrowing from the financial term “In the Black” we seek to flip the script on the misconception of African Americans, Africans and the Diaspora as “lacking/ impoverished”. The exhibits aims to refocus the lens on the innate wealth of the African people. Refocusing the narrative to one that tells the story of the descendants: the answered prayers of ancestors. With an intention to show connections between the African and Native Hawaiian culture.
