The work of Pellom McDaniels, III in Black: Towards An Afro-Cosmological Understanding centers around understanding the complexities of identity construction for people of African descent throughout American history, especially African American males. This show of works on paper and on wood using acrylic paint, fabric, glue, paper, and oil stick reflect his thinking from the election of President Barack Obama in 2008 to the Charlottesville protest in the summer of 2017.
