Published by Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College/Pitzer College Art Galleries. Edited with introduction by Rebecca McGrew and Ciara Ennis. Foreword by Ciara Ennis, Victoria Sancho Lobis. Text by Sadie Barnette, Rujeko Hockley.
Oakland-based multimedia artist Sadie Barnette (born 1984) has made groundbreaking explorations of her own family’s history and archives. She situates her father Rodney Barnette’s activism, including his founding of the Black Panther chapter in Compton, CA, and his surveillance by the FBI, in the social history of California and global histories of resistance against racial injustice. Through government documents, photography, writing, installation and her signature use of hot pink, Barnette transforms the bond between father and daughter into an art that speaks to the power of community action. This volume features several new works created for the exhibition, as well as a reproduction of the zine Barnette created as a tribute to her father’s New Eagle Creek Saloon, the first Black-owned gay bar in San Francisco.
