April M Frazier is a photographic based artist and native Houstonian. She creatively combines ancestral photographs and decades of research tracing her roots in Texas to create environmental portraits on lands with familial connection from the time of enslavement to the present. Pairing artifacts left behind like jewelry, bricks, and inherent knowledge, with visions of the current landscape, April weaves together her story of becoming the black woman she is. Her art practice converges at the four-way intersection of inherent memory, tethered connection to the landscape, ancestral and historical investigation, and lived experience.

Busi Peters: The Importance of the Process of Grief, Rituals, & Liberation Prayer

Date: April 5, 2024

6:00 PM–7:00 PM

Journey HTX

“Beah Ripple,” an exhibition/workshop opening Saturday, April 1, at Journey HTX with support from the Community Artists’ Collective, is developed and curated by Busi L. Peters-Maughan. The exhibition issues a call to action to be a part of a sexual healing grief ritual and to provide women a safe space to release and discuss sexual abuse between men and women, both mentally and physically.

Works of artists, both visual and performing, are included in the presentation.

Peters-Maughan’s inspiration to create this exhibition was inspired by Beah Richard’s poem, “Thus a Black Woman Speaks: Of White Womanhood, White Supremacy and Peace,” and is offered as an art healing tool for addressing sexism, racism, sexual abuse, mistrust and the monstrous relationships between women of different ethnicities.

Peters-Maughan, an activist, educator and Reentry/Criminal Justice/Hip Hop Artivist, explains that “This exhibition connects the dots between women of European descent, male patriarchy and other issues rooted in oppression, colonization and the captivity of melanin dominant/indigenous bodies.”

Workshops with discussions based on the artist’s statement will be held every Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. throughout the exhibition, which continues through April 29. A reception, artist talk and program with dance poems will be held Sunday, April 23, from 1 to 5 p.m.

Peters-Maughan holds a bachelor’s degree in information systems from the University of Houston Downtown and a masters in Multicultural Studies from the University of Houston Clear Lake. She is a wife and mother of two, and she endeavors to share her own unique perspective on the world as a native from the birthplace of Hip Hop the Boogie Down Bronx, a melanin dominant citizen of the Universe born in Amerikkka and as a child of the African Diaspora. She is the founder of the nonprofit WHEW (Women Healing & Empowering Women).

Special thanks to the Community Artists Collective for collaboration and support with curation and artist management.
The talk will be hosted at Journey HTX on April 5, 2024, at 6 p.m.

DOORS OPEN AT 5:30 p.m.

Pastoral theology is interdisciplinary in nature and therefore requires on-going critical engagement and correlative work with allied disciplines. As a teacher, scholar, and clinician, it is his intention to create an atmosphere of hospitality and curiosity and to encourage religious imagination in spaces of teaching and learning. Profoundly shaped by contemplative pedagogy, the penultimate goal of these teaching practices is to appreciate the complexity of the human condition and its flourishing in all ways and contexts.

The talk will be hosted at Journey HTX on October 18, 2024, at 6 p.m.
