THINGS I LEARN WHEN I EXPLORE THE CITY ALONE

I may have learned these things accompanied but for some reason my learning vibes seem more receptive when alone.
  1. Mary Church Terrell was the first African American woman to receive a college degree. She earned a degree in classics from Oberlin. I feel like I might have known this fact before but for whatever reason it was lost on me.
  2. The Whitney has an exhibit on the eighth floor about the Jazz Age featuring a black modernist painter, AJ Motley Jr. Mostly "struggle" art but still very moving. Also serendipitous that I saw this exhibit given the NYT feature article about black artist this morning.
  3. I want to study art history more than ever.
