FRIDA KAHLO: APPEARANCES CAN BE DECEIVING. Mexican artist Frida Kahlo’s unique and immediately recognizable style was an integral part of her identity. Kahlo came to define herself through her ethnicity, disability, and politics, all of which were at the heart of her work. Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving is the largest U.S. exhibition in ten years devoted to the iconic painter and the first in the United States to display a collection of her clothing and other personal possessions, which were rediscovered and inventoried in 2004 after being locked away since Kahlo’s death, in 1954. ------------------

Things to do Today!! @nyhistory has many exhibits and programs today celebrating #MLK and also these ongoing exhibits celebrating women.
Billie Jean King: The Road to 75
On view until 1/27/19
Presented in honor of her 75th birthday, this exhibition celebrates #BillieJeanKing through more than 75 photographs depicting her remarkable life and career. A sports icon as well as a lifelong advocate for gender equality and social justice, King lobbied for and obtained equal prize money for women at the US Open in 1973. She is renowned for her celebrated win over Bobby Riggs in the “Battle of the Sexes” match on September 20, 1973, and has won an incredible 39 Grand Slams.
Betye Saar: Keepin’ It Clean
On view until 5/27/19
Contemporary artist #BetyeSaar has shaped the development of assemblage art in the United States, particularly as a device to illuminate social and political concerns. A key figure in the Black Arts Movement and the feminist art movement of the 1960-70s, Saar’s distinct vision harmonizes the personal and the political. Over the years, Saar has transformed the representation of African Americans in American culture by recycling and reclaiming derogatory images such as Aunt Jemimas, Uncle Toms, sambos, and mammies to confront the continued racism in American society and create representations of strength and perseverance. This exhibition focuses on one facet of her work—washboards—created between 1997 and 2017.
Such a blessing to share the stage with these ladies at the @godsgirlsbrunch yesterday. Every time I get the opportunity to talk about God, it's a blessing. When I take the mic, I feel like Jeremiah when he said: his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire 🔥 shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.
