BLACK SPIRIT SPEAKS IN COMMON TONGUES
SEPTEMBER 4 - DECEMBER 3, 2019

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Using Haitian Vodou flags as a point of departure, Lingua Franca is a look at the way that African spiritual cultural retention presents in artwork across the Black diaspora. Vodou, Obeah, African American Spirituals, and colonial Christian histories, across the Black Atlantic, share more in common than the differences that make them so unique - and so too do the people with a shared history.
