I am convinced that there is something to be said for black women and our ability to make magic.
This week, three of the most magical black girls I know are getting together to host an art event in Seattle called The Trill Effect.
According to the event organizers, “The Trill Effect: A Dissection of Dominoes & Dogma is a multi-disciplinary exhibit that picks up where W.E.B. Dubois left off in his writings on the double-consciousness of the Negro and his concept of The Veil. Through painting, poetry and film we explore the identities behind the masks of assimilation and the depth that is often cloaked by the veil of duality.
Presenting emerging creatives, Kamari Bright and Blu the Baqi, and reintroducing ethereal artist, A.O. Hamer, the exhibit examines an established concept from a fresh, genuine perspective.”
Located in the Capitol Hill Neighborhood of Seattle, this women of color organized and centered event is sure to bring a little color back to the Capitol Hill area.
If you are in the PNW this Friday, this is an event you don’t want to miss! Check out event details here.
