 This work is from the new work in progress, Nodder Doll-Living Doll. With the nodder doll pickaniny banks, I reclaim, re-present them, ornately embellishing them to elevate and celebrate the beauty from the ill-conceived joke they originally were created to represent. The composition of the work speaks to the subversive nature of racism in the past and present. Just as the 1950s nodder doll clutched fruits as objects for stereotypical comic relief, what are some of  the challenges and social dilemmas facing the  21st Century Black woman as she maneuvers through everyday life? The work is planned to debut at the SFMOMA Artist Gallery in San Francisco, Fall 2017.

 The work explores the subversive nature of racism in the past and in contemporary society. Just as the minstrels mocked race in the 19th and 20th century, racism is masked through elusive societal codes such as dog-whistle politics (coded language) and racial profiling.
 
 And there is a new term Black Track coined by comedian Bill Maher for Republican obstruction: The act of changing one's mind because President Obama has agreed with you.
