These pieces remind me of those eerie paintings on a wall found near where Mitrice went missing, they give me the same horrible feeling. However, I do agree that it is a part of history whether we like it or not.

Yeah this isn't the type of art that you're supposed to "like"
 
It's very confrontational in a country that tries to mask and minimize the true horrors of slavery, much like the movie Goodbye, Uncle Tom. Or like that Middle Passage room in the Black Wax Museum.
 
I've seen this piece in person before, and it would certainly ruin my day at the library.

I agree with Bea. I embrace accept our history. Good, bad, and ugly. I'm glad they put the sh*t up. Let these yt folks get uncomfortable with the savagery their people inflicted. It is exactly what it is.

I don't like it but it shows what really did happen. It tells the ugly horrible truth about what happened to black women as slaves. There is no dressing it up, or making it romantic, just the cold facts.
I don't think it should be in a library and hey, this is not the greatest drawing I've seen but it did its work and got people talking.

I would categorize this under "slavery p0rn"

I don't like it or appreciate it especially for a Library
I also don't think it renders respect for the true VICTIMS of these crimes

This is not how they ought to be remembered

Have you seen that book? It's an illustrated novel with grotesque images of slavery, even more disturbing than the ones displayed in the library. It's not an ode to white men.
 
But the Black art world really dislikes her, for understandable reasons.
