ARTIST STATEMENT: The African American male today is faced with centuries of myths and miss guided perceptions perpetuated by the dominant cultural that it has reached a fever pitch across the country. At times, he is a prisoner within himself and/or the neighborhood he’s trapped in, usually because of his race or circumstances; one could argue that he was dead before birth.
