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."
