Pleased and honored to exhibit work alongside Richard Brathwaite @richbrat72 and Oscar Rivera @quietstorm422 in a show titled "UNCivil Service - A Radical View of NYC" at the Manhattan Borough President’s Office Maggi Peyton gallery 1 Centre Street, 19 Floor South, New York, NY 10007. The opening reception is Monday September 17th from 6-8pm. The work will remain in the gallery through the end of
October in case you can’t make it to opening night. A friend of mine, whose string-pulling is responsible for this event even taking place, tells me that a couple of NYC political big-shots will be in the house opening night. This friend of mine is also a filmmaker whose current project is a documentary about the Mayor Dinkins Administration, has more juice than she would ever admit publicly or in private and I'm anxiously looking forward to opening night. Hope to see you there.

#FIRST BLACK WOMAN #FEDERALJUDGE CONFIRMED

#ConstanceBakerMotley is confirmed as U.S. district judge and becomes the first Black woman on the federal bench. She was also first African American woman elected to the New York State Senate in 1964

Motley broke down barriers, overcame gender constraints, and operated outside the feminine role assigned to women by society and the civil rights movement.

Born in #NewHavenConnecticut, in 1921 as the #daughterofimmigrants from Nevis, British West Indies, Motley attended #FiskUniversity before transferring to #NewYorkUniversity, where she received a bachelor’s degree in economics. She subsequently became the #first black woman accepted to #ColumbiaLawSchool.

There she met #ThurgoodMarshall, chief counsel for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, and Motley became the #onlyfemaleattorney to work for the fund, arguing #desegregationcases in court during much of the #civilrightsmovement. From 1946 through 1964 she was a key #litigatorandlegalstrategist for landmark civil rights cases that included the #MontgomeryBusBoycott and the desegregation of the universities of Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia, and she #representedDrMartinLutherKingJr. and others jailed as a result of their participation in sit-ins, marches and freedom rides.

Motley was the #firstwomanelected to the $NewYork StateSenate in 1964 and in 1965 became the #firstwoman to hold the position of #ManhattanBoroughPresident. President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed her to the #UnitedStatesDistrictCourt in 1966, making her the first African American woman to hold a federal judgeship.

Motley’s determination in the face of #racialandgenderdiscrimination is inspiring. I think #JudgeMotley was somebody who #brokedownbarriers for other women of color, attorneys and women in general.

My monotype, 'Hells Gate' , in 'Waterways' art show at 'Manhattan Borough President's Office.
Organised by The Art Students League of New York, where I studied years ago. Opening was yesterday. Show is up until Septembar 5th.
Hells Gate is a place in Astoria, Queens, where East River is extremely dangerous and wild, but its all under surface, on the surface river appears slow and calm. Down under i'ts full of whirlpools and rocks. It's impossible to swim. Boat disasters happened in past, when deceivingly short distance to the bank tempted people, whose boats would hit rocks, to try swim to their rescue only to encounter even bigger dangers of curents whirling in the water.

Feeling grateful after an energizing and community building benefit with @artconnectsny last night. The neighborhood of West Chelsea stood proud together as presentations by Deputy Manhattan Borough President Matthew Washington, Council Speaker Corey Johnson's Chief of Staff Erik Bottcher, Robert Fulton Houses Tenants Association President Miguel Acevedo, artist @kambuiolujimi, For Freedoms, and Residents from Art Connects Robert Fulton Houses Art Committee spoke about the importance of art as a unifying creation of humanity. No matter your class, race, or place of residence, art should be accessible to everyone. The neighbors who came out last night including staff from The Rubin Museum, people who lived in Chelsea for decades, artists, friends and supporters stand by each other in solidarity to preserve Chelsea as a home and art center for all. We could not have had this evening with out the space that @paulacoopergallery made for us. We thank the gallery for standing with the community and letting us connect surrounded by your stunning Charles Gaines exhibition. .
