“ashé” comes from the african yoruba language as a word that embodies and transmutes power between the physical, spiritual, and nonliving realms. as the exhibition title, the participating artists become a testament to the revolutionary stories of survival, struggle, and reclamation found within the history and present of the african diaspora. the intent is to be present in the present moment, to be represented, and to share and no longer hide the gifts and talents within a community of students who represents 4.3% of the larger tufts community.
