"No other creative field is as closed to those who are not white and male as is the visual arts. After I decided to be an artist, t he first thing that I had to believe was that I, a black woman, could penetrate the art scene, and that, further, I could do so without sacrificing one iota of my blackness or my femaleness or my humanity”
