Through exhibitions, permanent collection acquisitions, and programming, Joslyn is working to elevate and amplify perspectives that historically have been underrepresented in the galleries. The Museum recognizes the potential of interpretation to highlight the diverse histories, beliefs, and practices embodied in works of art. With OMAHA SPEAKS, we look to broaden the conventional interpretation of objects in our permanent collection by introducing commentary from leaders in our community.

You’re my sistas
My friends til the end
Got secrets on hold
That I could only entrust you with
Cause this life
This life
Ain’t always been kind to us
Sometimes has us questioning
Our beauty
Our intellect
Our place at the table
But with each other
we’re always kind
Loan a dime
if we got it
Affirmations on time
when we want it
And there’s never a question
about a seat at our table
Cause there’s always room for us, Queens

We be
The Mother
The Daughter &
The Holy Ghost
Shining bright
like the stars we are
Beyond this physical realm
that says we don’t matter
But we are matter
The essence of all that is
and forever will be
We’re sistas
Friends til the end
Feel me?
