Black Masculinity: Narratives & The Power They Hold Reception

In Lucy Owiredu’s photography exhibition, she offers a counternarrative to society’s portrayal of black masculinity. While society may expect black bodies to be strong but emotionless, she creates a space where vulnerability is valued equally as strength. Lucy Owiredu is a Ghanaian American photographer. Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, she explores the art of storytelling through conceptual visuals that speak without words, are heard without sound, and communicate without barriers. Join us for a reception in the Coffman Second Floor Gallery with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and beverages to celebrate this exhibition. The event will include a panel discussion moderated by Qui Alexander, graduate instructor in the College of Education and Human Development. Panelists will discuss themes relating to perception, identity, and personal narrative.

This exhibition will run from October 10th until February 2nd in the Coffman Second Floor Gallery.
