how ordinary household artifacts have distorted how generations of Americans view
people of African descent as somehow less than human. Mainstream media may refer
to a post-racial 21st century America, but stereotypes and distortions of Black people
persist nonetheless. “I remember at a certain point in time there was an argument
that Black people should seek to have this stuff destroyed,” says Berry. “My position
was that you always want to remember what happens when you allow someone to
define who you are.” Donations kindly accepted. Info: (315)218-5711 or www.artragegallery.org
