Skylight Gallery presents: I AM HERE: Girls Reclaiming Safe Spaces exhibition

Now to January 25, 2015
Wednesday – Friday, 11 AM – 6 PM,
Saturday, 1 PM – 6 PM 

I AM HERE: Girls Reclaiming Safe Spaces is an exhibition of photographs and words curated by photographer Delphine Fawundu and writer Ibi Zoboi. The images portray girls of color around the world within their own unique safe spaces. The accompanying quotes are from successful women of color, that will reflect on memories of a times when they were truly safe in their own skins, homes, and neighborhoods. Within this context, “Safe Space” is defined as settings where girls of color are validated and affirmed and images portray positive reinforcements of happiness and security. The pure essence of these very candid slice-of-life images counter the often prevailing negative stereotypes of girls of color around the world as the sole victims of violence, sexual abuse, human trafficking etc. This exhibition and its supporting programs will explore the unending need to uplift the images of girls of color in order to reclaim the safe spaces of self, home, school, community, nation, and ultimately, the world.
