The Function of Freedom: A Visual Tribute to the Life and Legacy of Toni Morrison curated by educator and activist Charmaine Minniefield. This exhibit is a communal homage by renowned visual artists to Morrison’s iconic stature as a cultural beacon for the enduring power of Black creative authorship and authority. Charmaine Minniefield draws from indigenous traditions as seen throughout Africa and the Diaspora and her personal connection to women who have played a major role in her life. Her work explores African and African American rituals from a feminist perspective by pulling the past to the present, conversing between the spirit, space and the physical. This exhibit is free and open to the public at 101 Auburn Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA 30303.
