Presentation by Overlapse:

" This multi-layered work explores the Black experience of driving in America over the past 85 years. By picturing how it has too often been marked by fear, violence and death, A Parallel Road challenges representations of the American ideal of the road trip that have long dominated our view through artistic and literary media.

Referencing the historical Negro Motorist Green Book, and layering archival and new images, it examines the question of how long the road will continue to be a site of violence and oppression for Black people in American society. "

Hand-sewn single signature binding with buckram tape, uncut fore edge, printed wrapper (road map motif - see photos).
