Mo Dandi

I am really proud that the amazing brilliant scholar/artist Ana-Maurine Lara’s essay on my piece, delta dandi is PUBLISHED in this BIG book!!

Ana’s essay is titled, ‘i think i might be broken’: The Reconstitution of Black Atlantic Bodies and Memories in Sharon Bridgforth’s Delta Dandi.” She incorporated interviews she did with me discussing – how being a queer black artist/changes our sense of time and place, and how queer black artists, in general, play a role in the regeneration of creation.
