Artist’s Note:
The N-word is defined as any “victim of prejudice similar to that suffered by blacks; a person who is economically, politically, or socially disenfranchised”. The title of this work comes from one of the poems within, titled “Shoes”, which discusses the author’s overwhelming wish to save and uplift all disenfranchised people of the Earth and to change the structures which instigate inequality.
