Ghosts of Empires II
“This show will highlight the oversights in the historical narratives that we’ve been taught designed to focus on cultural difference and articulate varying overlaps that exist within these communities. There are a multitude of communities that have been oppressed because of colonization and imperialism, who, in spite of that, have been able to thrive and create rich cultures that have had a heavy influence on contemporary society.”
-Larry Ossei- Mensah
