Black Women of Print was founded in October 2018 by Tanekeya Word, a Black woman, visual artist, art educator, scholar and printmaker.

I wanted to create a space where intergenerational Black women printmakers could form bonds like Margaret Taylor Goss Burroughs and Elizabeth Catlett. From novice to masters of printmaking, it is my hope that we all can learn something from one another, support one another and also have a home so that the world can get to know the intersectional narratives of Black womanhood and our creative processes.
