My status as â€œotherâ€ does not always grant the luxury to say what is truly there for me, to correct a slight or present an alternative point of view. I have to be vigilantly self aware, and know the right time to speak up or how to frame my words so that they can be received in the best possible light. Sharing my uncensored opinion can quickly get me labeled as being â€œtoo big in a roomâ€ or worse an â€œAngry Black Womanâ€. When that happens, full stop. My opinion is dismissed outright. Somewhere along the way, Iâ€™ve even stopped correcting people who mispronounce my name. Itâ€™s Thee-duh if you are interested.
I am pretty excited to be one of thirty nine New Jersey women artists selected from over 1,000 submissions forÂ approaching VIBRANCY.Â Â The show is focused on presenting the diversity of women artists working in this region of Jerz.
