Sally Hemings University Connecting Threads

01 Jul 2023 - 09 Sep 2023


The Sally Hemings University Connecting Threads exhibition encapsulates the semester-long work of the students of Sally Hemings’ University, a higher-level English course offered at the University of Virginia that interrogates how aesthetic practices can operate within and alongside liberatory strategies. The course is taught by Dr. Lisa Woolfork who is an artist and English professor at UVA and Tobiah Mundt, a local fiber artist and founding member of the Charlottesville Black Artist Collective. SHUCT artists have read several works by phenomenal scholars and artists such as Audre Lorde’s The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House, Kevin Quashie’s Black Aliveness, and Jocelyn Johnson’s My Monticello.

Exhibition made possible through the generous support of JSAAHC Annual Fund.
