The Beauty of the Black Woman Artist Talk and Reception; Aesha Lee; Houston Museum of African American Art-Jan 27-Apr 7, 2018

Aesha Lee’s Statement

“All of my portraits have titles which reflect some of the things that black women are told on a daily basis from not just [people of] other races but within our own race, which come off as offensive even if they are not meant to be” says the artist. “Black women are ridiculed for our hair, the shape of our noses, the size of our lips, the way that we speak, and the different tones of our skin. We can be too dark or too light, our hair is too nappy or too straight, it is a lot to try to please society. I want young women of all races to look at the portraits and see beautiful women with all of their flaws, and know that they too are beautiful.”

Opening Sat- Jan 27, 2018

Time: 2pm-5pm

Where: HMAAC- 4807 Caroline St, Houston, TX 77004
