You may write me down in history With your bitter twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Maya Angelou

In 2014 the world lost two great female artists, Maya Angelou and Ruby Dee. Not only were they artists but also political and social activists. This exhibition, curated by Gladys Grauer, coincides with the Women in Media Film Festival and features four female New Jersey artists.
