View the “Give Them Their Flowers” Exhibit

Give Them Their Flowers is a first-of-its-kind exhibit to celebrate Miami’s Black LGBTQ+ history and comes at a critical time when Black and queer histories are under attack in Florida.

This exhibit pays homage to Miami’s Black queer history by merging historical research, archival imagery, artifacts, oral histories, video and portraits of Black LGBTQ+ Miamians over the age of 40.

This exhibit presents works by Miami artists Vanessa Charlot, Kendrick Daye, Woosler Delisfort, Hued Songs and Loni Johnson—and is co-curated by Nadege Green and Marie Vickles.

Give Them Their Flowers is made possible with the generous support of Maven Leadership Collective and University of Miami’s Center for Global Black Studies.
