For the second exhibition of the Museum of the African Diaspora's Emerging Artists Program, Cheryl Patrice Derricotte pays homage to Fred Wilson's "Mining the Museum", by "mining the library"--the British Library--for images related to the global slave trade.
Through work on glass and paper, Ghosts/Ships shares MoAD's four themes by uncovering historical representations of slavery to reveal a glimpse into the enduring legacy of the dispersal of African peoples throughout the world.
