Najee Dorsey chronicles moments in Black life throughout history. Born in Blytheville, Arkansas on January 26, 1973, this visual artist and publisher of Black Art in America has become known for his mixed media collage, digital media collage images of little known and unsung historical figures, as well as nostalgic scenes from African American life in the southern United States. In Dorsey’s view, “Stories untold are stories forgotten.”
Leaving Mississippi is a collection of works that' exemplify the deep southern roots that permeate Najee's work. Many characters in his evocative imagery are of well-known individuals and family, as well as beautiful stand-ins for humanity.
