Daughters of the Diaspora–Women of Color Speak

March 17, 2018 - May 13, 2018

| Free

Diaspora is defined as the dispersion of people from their homeland or a community formed by people who have exited or been removed from their homeland. The term diaspora comes from an ancient Greek word meaning “to scatter about.” And that’s exactly what the people of a diaspora do — they scatter from their homeland to places across the globe, spreading their culture as they go.

Daughters of the Diaspora—Women of Color Speak is an art exhibition at Henderson State University in Hot Springs, Arkansas that brings together creative voices through a variety of mediums. This exhibition features established and emerging women artisans from local, regional and national markets. The Landmark Building is a perfect setting for this art exhibit that inspires reflection about our history, identity, and culture.

Sponsors and partners for Daughters of the Diaspora—Women of Color Speak include: HSU-Hot Springs Academic Initiative, Hot Springs Area Cultural Alliance, Hearne Fine Art, Virginia Clinton Kelley Democratic Women’s Club, and Hot Springs Life Long Learning Institute.

Artist included in the exhibit are: Melverue Abraham • Phoebe Beasley • Lillian Blades • Bisa Butler • Theresa Cates • Elizabeth Catlett • LaToya Hobbs • Artis Lane • Samella Lewis • Louise Mandumbwa • Loni Rainey • Sondra Strong • Evita Tezeno • Anyta Thomas • Maria Villegas • Marjorie Williams–Smith
