Contemporary artist Kara Walker confronts complex subjects such as race, gender, and sex. I feel a connection to Walker in that I was also born on the west coast and moved with my family to Southeastern Kentucky. Racism was rampant to an extent it still is in the small town where I was raised. I confused me I was nearly an adult when I finally could see the ugliness it left in its wake. I studied at SCAD at the same time Walker attended Atlanta College of Art, which eventually became a part of SCAD Atlanta. Walker’s family moved from California to Stone Mountain, Georgia in her formative years my experiences pales in comparison to what she must have experienced moving to a city known for its clan rallies as a young girl.
