Tools of Our Freedom// Reclamation

With this project, we reflect on the tools to protect Black Genius in the past and in present day. When we examine these Black American Artifacts and excavate their complicated histories, it is clear that we have always taken what was available and used it to move us forward toward liberation. At times we survived with these tools and at other times we thrived. We know for sure that in order to protect Black Genius we absolutely have to investigate our past.
