27” x 32”
This work examines the intersections between Malcolm X and Pedro Albizu Campos and the struggle for African American and Puerto Rican liberation. They died exactly two months apart on February 21st and April 21st respectively in the year 1965. Painting from images of the body of Malcolm X and Albizu’s death mask, I juxtaposed these with a collage representing the lives and legacies of each. This work is from my series Archivos Subversivos.
