Finding Mulatto: An Exploration of Self Through Evidence of the Past

Sonseree Gibson

Friday, March 07 - 3:00PM to 3:45PM
Holiday 4-5

During her presentation Sonseree Gibson will present both collected images of old family photographs and newly created photographs from her series Finding Mulatto. Both the collected images and the newly created photographs explore what it means to be Black in America, and what it means to not be quite Black enough. Along with the discussion she will present images from her series Melungeon Descendants. This series goes one step further by exploring a hidden story of American history-a story of America's first mixed race people.
