Her Word As Witness is an exhibition of photographic portraits of a diverse group of contemporary women writers, celebrating their ability to incite our imagination, to expand our vision, to investigate and to document. Novelists, poets, journalists and songwriters, these women of letters are also daughters of the Diaspora; cocoa, crimson, amber, ginger-toned. Their stories are born in tongues of Kreyol, English, patois, Spanish, Twi, Gullah/Geechee. They use the pen to witness for their lives and the lives of those around them.
