In early 1971, Kay Brown, Dindga McCannon, and Faith Ringgold gathered a group of black women at McCannon’s Brooklyn home to discuss their common frustrations in trying to build their careers as artists. Out of this initial gathering came one of the first exhibitions of professional black women artists, “Where We At”—Black Women Artists, 1971. Adopting the show’s title as their name, the collective began meeting at members’ homes and studios, building support systems for making their work, while assisting each other with personal matters such as childcare. #wewantedarevolution⠀
