Confederate Black Hair Flag

Black Hair Flag by Sonya Clark

The artist is Sonya Clark and her work is currently on exhibit at the Southwest School of Art in San Antonio, Texas.  “In Black Hair Flag, the battle flag of the Confederacy is sewn through with black fibers; cornrows make the stripes, Bantu knots form the stars of the Stars and Stripes. The hybrid design that emerges asserts the presence of black people in the making of American modernity.”
