“The work she has done to create her script in Black does an interesting job of telling the story of black art and artists from many different disciplines,” McKinney said.
Graham said he was grateful and proud to be recognized.
“What I hear from their nominations is my passion for the community, my passion for black culture, creativity and art,” she said. “So the fact that it’s made clear by all the things I do with Scripted in Black, my intentions with Scripted Black and how I protect myself, it makes me feel so much better.”
Graham made the script in black as a hobby in 2017, but did not formalize it with Ohio until 2020.
She said: “Black and brown identities didn’t really have a socially leading and deliberately creative place in society, especially in the Dayton community. It was a representation of our story, who we are, how we work, how we live. ” “I feel that the traditional creative venues in the city have not done a great job of keeping us and showcasing the content of the work they are exhibiting. I just felt the need to make our stories different.” Let’s just say, in fact the black property business in our society that our society frequently exists, just in front of them and does not feel that it is not acceptable or welcome.
McKinney said that during the relaunch of the plague and its brand, Graham did an “exciting job” of illuminating art from a holistic perspective.
He said: “Blackmail is a place where you can study, have fun and treat yourself through art and art, not only by highlighting the important things in our culture, but also in Dayton. Celebrating the people who make the art scene special. “
Graham said she could never say what she did.
She said: “I wish I hadn’t mentioned Corey Smith (Director of Visual and Marketing) and Ashley Brooks (Episode Coordinator), who are definitely interested in hosting and organizing events in the city. Has worked. “
Written in black, she said, black creativity in cities helps the underground scene to find its place, find its home and connect with other like-minded people and be able to collaborate exclusively. Which may not be the original flow.
