Walter Magazine did a great article on our GBRHF exhibition catalogue. Black Oak Society founder Cortney Napier details what it was like curating the event and the ups and downs of creating a memorable catalogue to share the stories of our Queens. Though the process of sending out the book is still under way, the lessons that come along with creating it has surely taught us a little bit more about what it means to be a BOS! Read the rest of the article on Walter Magazine's website:
Also check out our Instagram where Courtney goes a little bit more into what is happening with the catalogue and how you can help Black Oak Society with its final publishing.
