Diasporic Threads - Black Women, Fibre & Textiles
|Publisher||Common Threads Press|
'Diasporic Threads: Black Women, Fibre & Textiles' highlights Black women's contributions to art and history through fibre-related mediums. The author, Dr. Sharbreon Plummer (Baton Rouge, LA) is an artist, strategist and storyteller that centres the stories and creativity of Black women. Sharbreon's upbringing in southern Louisiana informs her interest into how culture and ancestral memory act as influencers of contemporary art-making. This new publication surveys the history of Black women and textiles in North America, and spotlights five artists through a series of interviews, paying careful attention to the intersections of race, art, and cultural memory.
