Bernard Collins

“The message was clear: a nigger slave must hang tonight…”

BERNARD COLLINS is a visual artist and faculty member at Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia. He is also a spoken word artist whose humorous style hearkens back to the “Toasting” traditions of African American culture seen in poems like the “Signifying Monkey” or “Shine.”
