About the Work

From the Artist

Mammy's Little Coal Black Rose is a print of a minstrel series consisting of eight drawings. These drawings will be used in my film The KKK Boutique Ain't Just Rednecks.
—From Brandywine Workshop and Archives Records

This print is referenced in the film The KKK Boutique Ain’t Just Rednecks produced by Camille Billops and her husband, James Hatch, in 1994. The film addresses stereotypes, racism, and the violent history of the United States. KKK is an acronym for Ku Klux Klan, a military white supremacist organization that commits violent and racist acts against people of color.
—From Brandywine Workshop and Archives records

Camille Billops' aesthetic choices and creative repertoire are bold and disruptive interpretations of contemporary issues. Straddling between abstraction, surrealism, and documentary, Billops’ creative output challenges convention through the sheer act of production. Billops is a clairvoyant muse who brings us one and all into a reality seen only through her irrepressible eyes.
