Paying homage and respect to the black women.
"In this series, comprised of multimedia works on canvas, Béatrice Lebreton shares a wide spectrum of expression in 12 riveting portraits that exude emotion and evokes contemplation and conversation about the depth of black women and their persona in society. Still, she effectively incorporates parallels and imagery between American and Wester African civilization weaving a visual story through metaphorical use of symbols tying the past to the present."
