Lunch and Learn - Toni Lovejoy Discusses Women of Strength
Artist Toni Lovejoy will be sharing a short video of her series A Citizen of No Nation. She will be discussing the slave narratives that were used in these images and the power of their words. Her family lineage begins with Esther and Sylvia. Both former slaves who overcame the horror of being owned by the father and then continuing to work for him after freedom. She will share stories of women who had children snatched from their arms to be sold out from under them, and those who were used by the “masters”. Discussion will revolve around overcoming pain with power and of taking ownership of their stories.
