Last weekend in LA, the Black Image Center curated and hosted the 2021 Hear Her Here event, an initiative that seeks to share and highlight the work of Black femme artists. As a part of the event, the Black Family Archive celebrated the powerful history and legacy of black culture in LA’s Leimert park neighborhood. The weekend long event also incorporates a series of murals by artists Hana Ward, Adee Roberson, and April Bey, all of which will be showcased throughout Los Angeles in the months to come.
