Overview

Art is a storyteller of a people's collective consciousness and memory. Throughout history, it has been used to document the tales of human existence. In his book, Ancestral Voices Rising Up:
A Collage Series on the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, Obiora N. Anekwe chronicles the American tragedy of an unethical human experiment conducted on African American men. He gives the viewer a perspective of this human atrocity through the voice of art. As such, his collages speak to the ancestors of our past and transform the blues of an everyday people into a hope for human renewal. Obiora vividly reminds us all that the story of Tuskegee is one of remembrance, healing, and reconciliation.
