And in rejecting the image of black people it's not a matter of we are going to be, it's a matter of we are." Thomas goes onto explain what he means by the phrase a "black standard of beauty." Ends with silent views of art and sculpture on display in the gallery. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
