  • The myths of the "Black stud"  and the "white woman beauty ideal"  collide in this rhythmically constructed work about identity and desire. This video explores the specific historic, psychological and social implications of relationships between Black men and white women. Using their bodies as a point of juncture, the artists situate the viewer as voyeur while identifying the physical realm as the arena within which cultural communities and individuals oppose interracial relationships.
