February is Black History Month and we celebrated it through art. We went to OCAD University to check out Pixelation 2016
|Us at OCAD U|
|Baby doll sculpture represented a social experiment where kids showed preference for dolls with lighter skin over dolls with darker skin|
It was an eye-opening experience. Many of us were touched by the art in its exploration of what it means to be discriminated, what it means to celebrate diversity as well as what it means to self-discriminate base on the colour of our skin.
