Nikki Print 11 x 17 Glossy Paper
"For this piece, Nikki Giovanni was a source of inspiration for both Bianka and I.
Reading her poetry I ask, to what degree does intentionality underline my queerness? My Black queerness. And how does my definition of Black Queer girl magic help me to understand the balance of what is real and what is not. Magic although not real to many, is exhibited by Black women through the essence of their existence, and privilege although not real to many, is not exhibited through Black women’s experiences. We carry the dichotomy of being magic but not being treated as though we are magic."
