Untitled (Man in Blue Suit) by Jamel Shabazz

Today I visited the Posing Beauty in African American Culture exhibition at the Art Gallery of Hamilton. While I was there, a middle-aged, white woman was guiding a group of women--who were also middle-aged and white--through the exhibition. The group stopped at a photograph by Jamel Shabazz entitled Drama and Flava from Back in the Days (2000); the tour guide explained, "'Flava' means style." "And attitude!" someone added.
