Interview with La Keisha Leek on Strange Fire Collective by Ally Hasche

"The best way for me to consider the real complexity of the Black experience required me to open up this word as far as a possibly could. I couldn’t consider Trayvon without considering all Black boys. I couldn’t consider a Black boy without considering his environment or his mother. I couldn’t consider pain without also considering a Black woman’s supernatural ability to overcome, to connect, and to thrill. I couldn’t consider a reimagined reality without consideration of where we are today, and where we were almost 4 years ago when I mounted this exhibition."
