WHEN ONE TALKS ABOUT THE “SOUL” OF A MAN; MORE OFTEN THAN NOT, IT REFERS TO THE CONSCIENCE of the BEING; THE MOTIVATION.
THEN THERE IS THE RELIGIOUS INTERPRETATION OF “SOUL”. Some BELIEVE THE SOUL DIES, while others, that the soul is immortal!
Outside of philosophy and in particular religion, “SOUL” is often spoken of in the context of ART.
This is more apparent, because whether it be music, poetry, still or performing art, it is how that individual or the collective see life or have experienced it.
In this edition you are looking with me at two women, who have decided to place their language of “SOUL” on public display.
First, MEGAN LEWIS. She wanted to share her “joys, frustrations and prideful moments of Black women”. For that, her “language of soul” became her emotional expose: the thickness of black women: lips, noses, eyes, and the unabashedness with which black women embrace color. Too dark for Yellow or Fuchsia! Not anymore!
Next is Mayble LEE, A JAZZ DANCER AND SINGER, born in Atlanta Georgia. And what is she to Baltimore, MD.?
For this, welcome the voice of DEREK PRICE, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, EUBIE BLAKE CULTURAL CENTER:
These two exhibitions are currently at the EUBIE BLAKE CENTER, on HOWARD STREET, in Baltimore MD.
