Ali McClain & Donald Black Jr.

A home grown exhibition of poetry and photography

“i get to the truth through poetry. i love that about writing. and so, this is all about discovering the truth. this is all about unravelling the truth. this is all about facing the truth. i am not a heavy talker. my guard is massive; behind it lies my poetry. my work is braver than i could ever be. i am so grateful it exists.”

Donald Black Jr.

“Simply put, I love the experience of being Black, but this shit is hard. Photography has helped me find a balance with this conflict. My inability to shake my experience has transformed photography into an obsession. There are always images in my mind that I am trying to capture. I have developed a sense of purpose and responsibility with this obsession I’ve created.


In this work, the people represent the beauty and our reality is the burden.”
