The Awakening presents visual artworks created by up-and-coming Scarborough Artist Ashante Blackwood, depicting the various stages that women of colour have, and continue to experience as they learn to overcome and love themselves in a society that has historically prioritized ideals of white beauty. From being broken down to nearly nothing, to building themselves back up, to not only finding their true identity but also learning to love it, this insightful exhibit presents works that tell a story of rebirth – the true Awakening of a melanin goddess.
