“A mantle is designed to cover, enfold, or envelop.

Stereotypes, caricatures, and misinformation are males that have historically obscured and dehumanized the Black Body. Through expanded photography Amber N. Ford deconstructs these binds by reassessing definition of Black as a color, a construct and a lived reality.”
