We were treated to a Salon Styled-Guided tour of the current installation, Urgent Care, by the awesome Executive Director and Founder Vashti DuBois. "Urgent Care is A Public Art Performance ----which cast the colored girl simultaneously as first responder and patient."
One of the many poignant things Vashti said during the tour was that everyone tells the Colored Girl to "stay woke", but she believes Colored Girls need to go to sleep and rest up for battle/life. It's so fitting that this week The Colored Girls Museum's Facebook page posted an article about "Lullaby," a beautiful song by the artist TASHA, that both captures Vashti's sentiments, and that could be a perfect soundtrack for Urgent Care. Take a listen, then get yourself to the museum for some healing and love. You may even spot a copy of I Know I Can! somewhere in the museum! ~ Veronica N. Chapman
