Taking inspiration from W.E.B. Du Bois’s hand-drawn charts on the state of Black life, Curbeon creates prompts to map the emotional landscapes of Black femmes in her community with an instructive, participatory, and meditative workbook.
Show Me What You want to Say employs social practice techniques and data collection tools to surface and embrace the complex inner worlds of its subjects, offering an innovative and interdisciplinary alternative to conveying a personal narrative that is at once direct, welcoming, and untethered to any single methodology or school of thought.
