    Wanda's Picks Radio Show

    in Art

    1. MoAD Emerging Artist, Cheryl Derricotte’s “Ghosts/Ships” 

    She pays homage to Fred Wilson’s Mining the Museum by “mining the library” (the British Library) for images related to the global slave trade. This show includes approximately 20 works that reveal images of people from African descent who come from diverse locales and were involved in the slave trade.
    Images of slave ships and oceans reveal how the art and culture of the African people have been dispersed all over the world. The exhibit will include portraits of enslaved people from the Diaspora, ships, oceans and botanical illustrations of cotton, which was a central crop to the institution of slavery and the basis of much of the early craft art.

    Originally from Washington D.C., Derricotte is a visual storyteller who currently resides in Oakland, Calif. She holds a MFA from the California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS) and has been awarded Art Alliance for Contemporary Glass’ Inaugural Visionary Scholarship and a D.C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities /National Endowment for the Arts Artist Fellowship Grant. She’s exhibited at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, Florida State University Museum of Fine Arts and the San Francisco Airport Museum.

    This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

    Thurgood Marshall- Thaddeus Stevens - Lincoln Abolitionists

    in Education

    Dr. John Hope Franklin is the tie that binds- Not only is he the son of the great Civill Rights Lawyer Buck Franklin he was also an advisor to Thurgood Marshall during the historical Brown v. Board of Education Topeka 
    Dr. Franklin's father Buck Franklin sued the City of Tulsa for passing an ordinance that effectively barred blacks from rebuilding their city, "Black Wall Street" after the Tulsa Race Riots of 1921.  Buck Franklin won that suit before the Oklahoma Supreme Court.
    His father’s success – and his critical importance to the Greenwood community – became a preamble to the success and importance of the son. Dr. John Hope Franklin became one of the most important American historians of the 20th Century.
    As a historian, a scholarly voice working for American civil rights, an advisor to Thurgood Marshall during the United States Supreme Court Case Brown v. Board of  Education, Dr. Franklin was on Marshall’s team of historians which uncovered a speech written in 1866 by Thaddeus Stevens, (Steven Spielberg's Movie Lincoln (Tommy Lee Jones) the leader of the Aboltionist Republicans who introduced the 14th Amendment. 
    Steven delivered his speech before Congress Steven said in part: “Where any State makes a distinction in the same law between different classes of individuals, Congress shall have the power to correct such discriminations and inequality.” Marshall and his team argued that the drafters of the amendment -Bingham himself had stated that constitutional provisions should be “writ broad for ages yet unborn.”
