This exhibition is a collection of contemporary Pro-Black propaganda, imagined in the colors of and in tribute to the Pan-African flag.

The tri-color Pan-African flag is a symbol introduced in 1920 by the fraternal organization Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL). Its goal is to promote racial pride in response to harmful stereotypes.

Interdisciplinary artist Shani Crowe (pictured) seeks to promote the same principles using materials and references that are staples in Back Culture. Featuring photographic portraiture, yarn tapestry and beading, Crowe seeks to reinvigorate the themes of unity, reflection and self-affirmation, all of which were a part of her upbringing.
