Discover the Latest in Art and Social Commentary

This April, The Hear UP is excited to feature Black Shero: C-Note Celebrates Black Women History Month, an online exhibition that brings to the forefront the resilience, creativity, and spirit of Black women through the artistic lens of Donald “C-Note” Hooker. As the world’s most prolific prison artist, C-Note has dedicated over 25 years to creating visual and literary works that honor and explore the diverse experiences of Black women.

Insights into “Black Shero”

Running from April 1 to April 30, 2024, “Black Shero” is a collection that transcends the typical boundaries of art exhibitions. It features poems, articles, drawings, paintings, sound recordings, and videos, all crafted by C-Note from his prison cell. This exhibition highlights significant pieces like “Colored Girl Warholed,” which enjoyed its own solo billboard exhibition, and “Make A Thug Scream Like Prince,” a piece blending humor and eroticism to delve into complex narratives of Black female identity.

C-Note’s Eclectic Artistic Journey

Donald “C-Note” Hooker’s work, characterized by its emotional depth and eclectic style, serves as a potent form of social commentary.
