Negro Stories Now Open in Denver


Denver, Colorado - Do you remember the first time you heard the n-word? 


What about the first time that you experienced or witnessed racial discrimination? 

These questions are the inspiration for a moving  new art exhibition now showing at Converge Denver in the RiNo Arts District. 


Negro Stories examines the concepts of collective trauma and healing through the lens of racial discrimination, 

and the  original works of art presented provide a stirring summary of the realities experienced by Americans of African descent.


"For far too long, racism and systemic oppression have been viewed as a problem strictly of the oppressed", shares  Negro Stories creator Chloe Duplessis. DuPlessis is a legally blind contemporary artist, committed to creating art that inspires conversations on culture, history and healing.


"But racism affects us all. And by assigning the weight of racism to communities of color, one can attempt to dismiss history, but in doing so you protect the very systems that have led us to our current space as a country. We all have a ‘Negro Story’ and, in order to heal, we have to address our our history and our issues ... Together. It is what the moment requires and what our children deserve."


Negro Stories runs through February 28, 2021. Tours of the exhibition are available by appointment. 

To schedule a viewing, please call (209)720-4ART or email chloeduplessis.art@gmail.com.
