Powell, Duke’s John Spencer Bassett Professor of American, Afro-American and African Art and Art, Art History & Visual Studies, how her work “investigates forms of embellishment as they relate to youth culture within disenfranchised communities and break down themes of violence, masculinity, visibility and invisibility within black youth culture globally.”
