BTS | A Black Woman’s Tears

About | As a young black woman living in the United States, experiencing how the various systems and infrastructures of oppression, everything from education to employment, to interactions with individuals and personal relationships have contributed to the personal emotional blockage of black women. Where we often keep a lot of our experiences and feelings of pain, anger, sadness, and frustrations within, where it continues to build up. Since black women, are often described as strong and always holding it together, I wanted to explore what would happen if we unleash the emotional flood gates and release all that we are holding: happiness, fear, sadness, pain, frustration, regret, remorse, guilt, pint up aggression, softness, and joy? What would the effect be on ourselves and our environment? The circles are used to create texture and represent the different emotions, feelings and experiences that make up the black woman.
