Previous iterations of the acclaimed exhibition in Chicago and San Francisco have focused on black men who spurn “stereotypical and monolithic understandings of black male identity” through fashion and social attitudes—“high-styled rebels”, as the curator Shantrelle P. Lewis describes them. Pictured is Osborne Macharia‘s “Mrs. S Were.”
