Y’all Don’t Hear Me” is a statement by someone who feels disregarded, which resonates with the Black Appalachian community. “You don’t hear us because you’re not listening; you’re not listening because you don’t know we exist.” - Kreneshia Whiteside-McGee, Curator.

The purpose of this collection is to amplify their narrative and remind audiences that there are quality artists creating in the mountains. Although the base of the project is visual arts, music and language are highly recognized components of Appalachia. Poetry by Nikki Giovanni and Crystal Wilkinson are included throughout the collection along with playlists for each era (available on YouTube). Together, each of these creative components pushes the exposure of Black artists and adds to the ambient experience for the public to better understand our culture.

6:00 PM – Meet and Greet
7:00 PM - Conversation with Kreneshia Whiteside-McGee, Curator
