"Jane," one of the Black Angels in the exhibit "Fly Away Home" by Belinda Lyons Zucker
Exhibit: January 7 - February 25 Reception & Talk: January 13, 4-6pm Angel Making Workshop: January 28, 2-4pm Fly away home ... an exhibit of dolls and figures from Black folklore. Tales in Black folklore tell of Africans that flew. Perhaps these stories were created as a desire to ease their weary lives; to dream of escape. Those left to work the fields remained slaves and told these fantastic tales with only their imaginations to set them free. They flew away… and disappeared.
