My piece, the San Francisco 49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl shirt and I love this Astral Sea II, is rooted in ritual, ceremony, remembrance, and memorialization; the mirror materials are derived from my light monuments that create space to reflect upon and honor moments of profound loss. Grappling with the long history of the dehumanization of Black women and their communities through processes that normalize their premature death. This afterlife of slavery, knowing horrors of a global capitalism built from the limited life and expedient death of Black women, harkens to the inquiry of scholars Christina Sharpe, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Igiaba Scego, and more.

Sojourner Truth, Ida B. Wells, Mary Church Terrell, Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, Nannie Helen Burroughs—Black suffragists I honor in this collage along with Zikalála-Sa, who fought for voting rights for Native Americans; Elizabeth Eckford, one of the San Francisco 49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl shirt and I love this first students to desegregate schools; and Stacey Abrams, who continues the fight for equitable voting rights. A punctured medicine blister pack is the frame through which to view these archival images. Through openings made by pushing out medication to relieve pain, we can view the past and imagine a more just future.
