"Black Americana" is a project aiming to deconstruct negative stereotypes through redefining and "reappropriating" relics of black americana. The goal of this first installment, says artist Tanisha Pyron, is to explore the dynamics between black women and men at various points in the African-American historical timeline. "[We're] looking to quantify and establish what it took for one black man to love one black woman in the past and what it takes now and cast vision for it will take generations to come," she writes.
