IMAGES OF BLACK WOMEN as Avatars of Spiritual Agency

By Angela N. Carroll in Hyperallergic

Delita Martin’s latest exhibition, Calling Down the Spirits, seeks to visualize the incorporeal and genetic strands that tether generations of Black women to each other and to the spiritual world. 

WASHINGTON — In “The Moon and the Little Bird,” (2018) a mixed-media work on paper, two figures sit on white chairs that face each other in a non-distinct blue space.  The first, a woman, sits cross-legged in the foreground.

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
