Everyday, I say this simple word: “No!” At times, I say it loudly. Sometimes, I say it softly. But I always mean it. Black women suffer under multiple jettes in the tidal wave of oppression. As chattel, our wombs were the engine that built Euro-American wealth, so we had no reproductive or other rights. For these reasons, I am often furious. I say “No” to any attempts to bully me into not asserting my right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

Please note - the actual physical dimensions of this piece are 16.3 x 13.6 inch (h x w). The relative size of this work has been adjusted for the purposes of the virtual gallery presentation.
