MY, I Said, “NO!” Crown

MY, “I Said NO!” Crown is from a series, “Just A Crown: Reimagining 40 of the Crowns/Personalities That Black Women and Girls Wear During Their Lifetime. This crown speaks to the moment of refusing consent in the life of young, African-American girls. The unspoken discussion of how these girls are easily sexualized thru music, entertainment and misogynistic predatory manipulation, in and outside of the family. The Crown is designed of downturned hearts and allude to how the loving trust of youth is gnawed away at by the hard-earned self protection alliances and disappointment in choosing empowerment over being “loved”. There are three other illustrations that will be interpreted as either “doors” or “shields” by the viewer.

Other Consent Relevant Crowns in this series are both print and fabric art designs.
