Author and independent curator kimberly drew (@museummammy ) works at the intersection of art, design and activism. a special focus of her work is celebrating black, indigenous, disabled and otherwise marginalized creatives.
“i want people to know the incredible abundance of diversity. i want people to know that they should always have an imagination about what’s possible when we learn from each other,” says kimberly.
“2020 has taught me that many people weren’t paying attention to the racist, ableist foundations of our world. many people didn’t hold themselves accountable to the work of dismantling white supremacy. many people have been complicit. i hope we all continue to learn more about our shared responsibility for a better world.
i think it’s important that a platform like instagram highlights, amplifies and makes space for black creatives, because for far too long our voices have been unrightfully pushed to the margins. and, quite frankly, if you aren’t amplifying black voices, you’re silencing them. it’s as simple as that.
the instagram community should take on any opportunity to follow someone who may be different from them.”
