Open discussion with Bijan Bayne (author, Sky Kings: Black Pioneers of Professional Basketball) and poet and painter Kyi May Kaung.
In our "rush" to judgment, and desire to have a "place" for everything, and for everything a place, we race to identify people. In that hasty race, when we cannot define their place, we wonder who they are? Definitions based on complexion, context, and conception fall apart before the reality that the myriad genes swimming in our respective pools express themselves in more ways than we ever could. To answer the question that decorum forbids we ask a stranger on the street, Dr. Kyi May Kaung's exhibition of "ethnically ambiguous" portraits, accompanied by writer Bijan C. Bayne's captions, in turn ask the viewer a question: "Who Am I?"
