Further information:
"Stripping the maritime alphabet of its primary colors and replacing them with muted browns and blacks, 'Mourning/Warning' highlights the relationship of Americans of African diaspora to water, maritime trade and the need for an alternate means of communication in times of emergency and duress. How do you send a warning call that hatred comes constantly in waves?
"M/W serves as a method of honoring, mourning and remembering the slain and wronged as well as teaching our children and ourselves to be vigilant and wary in hostile terrain, where your skin color makes you an easy target." Tia Blassingame
