Now in its fifth iteration at SOMArts Cultural Center, The Black Woman Is God has proven to be a high-level exhibition. It presents lessons in spiritual identity, conveying the Black feminine rituals that have developed the structure of the Black community. These practices encourage diasporic collaboration, which continues to build visual discourse and advances the architecture of Black culture. Therefore, what have Black women artists imagined? What will they imagine for themselves, for their families, communities, and future?
