Women of a New Tribe

Women of a New Tribe

Presented by Flint Institute of Arts at Flint Institute of Arts

The Women of a New Tribe presents the spiritual and physical beauty of selected African American women in the Flint community. Part of a larger project that has travelled across the United States, including Indiana, Pennsylvania, Florida, and North Carolina, this exhibition contains photographic portraits by artist Jerry Taliaferro. The subjects come from all walks and stages of life: they are mothers, daughters, artists, professionals, and community activists. According to Taliaferro, his primary motivation in this project is “to reveal the beauty and souls of black women.” He explains that the heart is as essential as the eye in seeing beauty. Taliaferro believes that “it is with our hearts that we see the invisible qualities. It is with our hearts that we see courage, compassion, love, and sacrifice.”
