They say "history is written by victors" when it comes to the Black experience and the racism that often impacts it. The negative ramifications of this quote in relation to colonialism and the transatlantic slave trade have corrupted the full truth of Black history. Filling in the Pieces in Black aims to help redress this imbalance by bringing together a collection of some of the most talented artists of today, and through the power of visual storytelling they Redefine the past, Refocus the present and Reshape the future.
