 From Cynthia Hawkins:

February 1, 2013 marks the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation  
Proclamation and there is underlying tension with this anniversary,  
which is why we desperately need to “Meditate” on its meaning.

  Interrogation of the Emancipation Proclamation and its attending  
ramifications as a physical, intellectual and, or spiritual state or  
condition must lead us all to pose questions and seek possible answers  
that elucidate our personal and public thoughts and positions on the  
Emancipation Proclamation.  How do we understand Emancipation today?   
Does Emancipation mean more than the physical elimination of slavery?   
What other kinds of Emancipation are there?  How might we as artists  
meditate on and produce visualization of what Emancipation meant in  
the past, means now, and might mean as we move forward into the 21st
