9th Annual Black History Spoken Word and Art Exhibit




In a speech delivered in 1896, “Democracy and Education,” Booker T Washington said, “Each colored child had spent on him this year for his education about fifty cents, while one of your [white] children had spent on him this year for education not far from twenty dollars. And yet each citizen of this county is expected to share the burdens and privileges of our democratic form of government just as intelligently and conscientiously as the citizens of your beloved Kings County.” Surprisingly, today there was is still a great disparity between educational funding as nonwhite school districts receive about 23 billion dollars less than white districts (EdBuild). Not to mention the fact that NYC holds some of the most segregated schools in the country. Even here in New Rochelle, 60 years after the desegregation of Lincoln school, we face the “Honors Dilemma” urging every New Rochelle resident to consider whether there is segregation in our honors and AP classes and what are we going to do about it. I was inspired to create this collage piece by conservations in my African American History class and with friends about the lack of diversity in our honors classes and how it illustrates the effects of segregation on the current educational system. To illustrate the connection between past and present by including pictures from the segregation period and recent pictures about modern segregation. I also added gouache paintings of two students. I outlined their brains and filled that negative space with flowers. The white student who receives a greater foundation for growth has more flower blossoms because he was given more opportunities to thrive and grow as an intellectual. While the student of color does not receive the same resources and does not receive the same opportunities to tap into his potential (i.e. the flower buds). By illustrating the effects of economic and educational segregation, my piece is a call to action to address the lingering effects of our past and create a future where all students receive the resources they need and deserve.
