I am accused of tending to the past.

Excerpt from Exhibition Statement:
‘One of my favorite moments in the exhibition is a photo I took of my Grandmother, called “Grandma” , . It’s situated above a poem by Lucille Clifton entitled, “I am accused of tending to the past.” This makes me think of my lineage and of black women being at the forefront of tending to falsified histories and constant erasures, but remaining strong in the midst of challenges sprouting from seeds they did not plant.’
