October 1st – 12th
A Call for Letters to Harriet Tubman
We are calling all survivors of domestic violence, community members, young people, older people, and anyone in between to send Black Women’s Blueprint, Inc. letters for Harriet Tubman whose legacy of resistance as a survivor of domestic violence has been erased from mainstream historical accounts about her life. These letters or artistic expressions should reflect the survivor spirit, sharing one’s own experience, encouraging Harriet as our foremother at a time when there was little recourse or protection, asking Harriet for guidance in your own circumstances as a victim and/or survivor of domestic violence. Send letters to 279 Empire Boulevard, Bklyn, NY 11225 or email email@example.com. These letters will be featured in our October 12th exhibition: Letters to Harriet: Conversations on John Tubman and the Public and Private Dimensions of Domestic Violence.
